Charlie Crist Agrees to Two Nationally Televised Debates Update: Marco Wants Fox First
If there was any doubt that Florida's Republican primary has become one of the marquee elections of 2010, it ought to be eliminated as Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio are now likely to face off in not one, but two nationally televised debates.
The Buzz reports that not only has Crist agreed to face off against Rubio on Fox News Sunday, but has also agreed to do the same on NBC's Meet the Press.
The Meet the Press meeting will go air on March 7, while the Fox bout will air just three weeks later on March 28.
"No national news organization has shown greater interest in covering this race than FOX. It's unfortunate that Charlie Crist doesn't understand this," says Rubio mouth-piece Alex Burgos.
