From Abortion: "I just think it's right for women to make their own choices about their own bodies," said Crist.

To equal rights: "In addition, I think it's very important that women receive equal pay. That's not the case today in our country, and I think President Obama is on the right track."

Former Governor Charlie Crist had a lot to say to a group of about 100 women from the Democratic Party, in North Naples Monday night.

"I left the Republican party, and the Republican party really left me," said Crist.

Crist also had a lot to say about his opponent in the race for Governor, current Governor Rick Scott.

Firing back at an ad Scott's campaign plans to run starting this week.

It attacks Crist's support for Obamacare, and reintroduces the claim that 300,000 people lost their insurance following the change in healthcare.

"They are just lying again. I mean Politifact already checked this. I mean it's liar, liar, pants on fire. I can't believe they can continue to do this."

A spokesperson for Governor Rick Scott released this statement: 

“Charlie Crist has embraced Obamcare, a disastrous healthcare law full of fraudulent promises, such as the infamous lie that if you like your healthcare plan you’ll be able to keep it. As Floridians are losing their health insurance and their doctors, Crist has told them he knows what’s best, but it’s clear he’s only looking out for himself.” 

When WINK News asked whether Crist thought both campaigns were focused more on the other's weaknesses, rather than the candidate's own strengths, Crist said, "I want to talk about both. I don't want my fellow Floridians to be fooled again."

And when asked whether he'd fight back? 

"I want to make sure Floridians know the truth, and I don't think it's negative, ever, to tell the truth."
