Hodge at Race42012: Charlie Crist should re-consider 2010 plans, run for re-election as Florida Governor


But where Gov. Crist has built-in general elections advantages in the US Senate race, Crist also has disadvantages.  The two that stand out to me:

  1. Crist unapologetically supports the “stimulus.”  We should assume that Democrats will use this against him in any way they can.
  2. Crist has now twice broken his no-new tax pledge as governor, according to The Club for Growth.  Democrats will definitely use this against him (of course, while also supporting the tax, but I think we can count on the criticism being effective in the general election).
