BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Former Democratic Congressman Robert Wexler has made his support of Gov. Charlie Crist official.
The self-proclaimed "fire-breathing liberal" gave Crist his endorsement in the U.S. Senate race Sunday, snubbing Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek. Crist is a Republican-turned-independent.
Wexler is hugely popular in his district and is known for his support in South Florida's large Jewish community.
The campaign of Republican Marco Rubio derided the announcement, asking "Is there anything" Crist "won't say or do to try to win an election?" The Meek campaign said the endorsement was a foregone conclusion and that it had more to do with a friendship between Crist and Wexler than "positions, principles, or public service."
