Charlie Crist went on CNN yesterday and said that he didn't endorse the stimulus package.
"The bill that passed wasn't exactly what I would want to vote for. But it's what passed. And once that happened, you need to realize you need to do everything you possibly can to fight for Florida and our fellow Floridians, whether they're school teachers, construction workers or whatever it might be. And so once this happens, you know, I think it's important to embrace it, fight for Florida's fair share and do what's right for the state."
