Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist is on the air with a
new ad in Florida's major television markets challenging the
credibility of his two opponents in the U.S. Senate race.
In the 30-second ad, "What Do we Really Know about Marco Rubio
and Kendrick Meek," the announcer says Meek, a Democrat, steered
government contracts to an indicted developer who gave his mother a
Cadillac. It says Rubio, a Republican, is being investigated by the
Internal Revenue Service.
Crist, who is running as an independent in the Senate contest,
appears briefly at the end of the ad to say he approved its
content.
The Meek and Rubio campaign camps fired back Friday, calling the
ad cynical, desperate and highly personal since it also targeted
family members.
