TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Crist had nothing good to say about Gov. Rick Scott while another Democrat, former state Sen. Nan Rich, didn't have anything complimentary to say about either.
Rich told journalists Wednesday at the 20th annual legislative editors meeting hosted by The Associated Press that she was the only true Democrat seeking to oust Scott. She took several shots at Crist, who switched parties to enter the race just four years after giving up the governor's seat in an ill-fated bid for the U.S. Senate.
Both hopefuls blasted Scott for refusing to accept billions of dollars from the federal government that could have led to tens of thousands of new jobs in Florida.
Crist said he was much more comfortable politically as a Democrat and had effusive praise for President Obama during his appearance.
