ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist is criticizing the man he appointed to the U.S. Senate seat he's now seeking.
Speaking to the St. Petersburg Times editorial board, Crist lamented the hyper-partisanship of Washington and singled out Sen. George LeMieux, his former chief of staff.
Crist criticized LeMieux's decision to join Republicans this week in preventing a vote against the DREAM Act, which would grant permanent residency to immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children and who have completed some time in college or the military.
A spokesman for LeMieux would not respond to Crist's comments.
