Exclusive: Crist "Absolutely" Would Have Voted for Stimulus

By |

Florida Senate candidate Gov. Charlie Crist has gone wobbly on his support for the Obama stimulus package, as noted sharply here by Think Progress. Most revealing, he told CNN on November 4th: "I didn't endorse it, I didn't even have a vote on the darn thing."

But when I interviewed Crist this spring for my piece The GOP Jihad, here's what he told me he'd have done had he had a darn vote:

Rolling Stone: Just a final question: Had you been in the Senate, would you have voted with the other Republicans for the stimulus package?

Crist: Absolutely.
