TAMARAC (FLV) – Thursday, Democrat nominee for Florida governor Charlie Crist is a prime speaker at the “Unite Rally Broward” in Tamarac with Val Demings, Nikki Fried, Aramis Ayala, and others.
The “Unite” rally comes the day after Crist attacked supporters of Gov. Ron DeSantis as being “haters.”
“Join the Blue Shift FL team and Broward Dems for our Unity Kickoff to Shift Florida Blue,” the event description reads.
The day after the Florida primary, Crist kicked off his face-off against DeSantis by calling his supporters “haters”: “If you have hate in your heart, keep it there.”
“I want the vote of the people of Florida who care about our state – good Democrats, good Independents, good Republicans. Unify with this ticket. Unify with Val Demings and Charlie Crist. Unify with us,” he said. “Those who are haters – you’re gonna go off in your own world. And you better get right.”
“Those who support the governor should stay with him and vote for him and I don’t want your vote.”
Crist beat Democrat rival and current Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried by around 370,000 votes, or nearly 25%, unofficial results show.
Republican Party of Florida pounced on Crist’s win, launching a statement lambasting Crist as a “career politician and lockdown Democrat.”
“While Governor DeSantis was keeping Florida Free, Crist was in Washington voting with Joe Biden’s reckless policy agenda 100% of the time––skyrocketing inflation, defunding police, and 87,000 new IRS agents to audit the middle class. Sorry, Charlie, but Floridians are going to give you the boot––again. You’ve earned it,” the party said.
After a strong primary performance from Republican candidates across the Sunshine State, the GOP celebrated and turned their eyes towards Nov.’s election.
“Florida Republicans remain committed to widening our lead over Democrats and exposing their tainted brand,” RNC Spokeswoman Julia Friedland said.
