Crist on Gaming Lawsuit

November 20th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist is taking a wait and see attitude with the law suit filed against the gaming pact the governor entered into with the Seminole tribe. Yesterday, House Speaker Marco Rubio asked the state Supreme Court to Invalidate the agreement. Today Crist said he respects the speaker, but says he believes he is on strong legal ground.

“I think theres a 40 day window for the federal government to act,” Crist said. “Were reviewing it right now, as you might expect, from a legal prospective and I would encourage you to stay tuned.”

The House Speaker is opposed to the Seminole agreement. He is also considered a potential challenger to Crist in the 2010 GOP Primary.
