HeadlineAug 24, 2022

In Florida, the state’s former Republican Governor Charlie Crist won Florida’s Democratic primary for governor on Tuesday. Congressmember Crist will face Republican Governor Ron DeSantis in November. Crist spoke on Tuesday night.
bq. Rep. Charlie Crist: “The stakes could not be any higher for this election. Our fundamental freedoms are literally on the ballot, my friends. A woman’s right to choose, on the ballot. Democracy, on the ballot. Your rights as minorities are on this ballot. That’s what’s at stake in this election. Make no mistake about it, because this guy wants to be president of the United States of America, and everybody knows it. However, when we defeat him on November 8, that show is over.”
