No Convention for Governor

September 2nd, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist was to be a major speaker at the Republican National Convention in Minnesota this week, but the governor is still here in Florida. The reason: three tropical storms potentially taking aim on the state. Crist says he may address the convention via satellite, but that is still up in the air.

Weve got a lot coming at us and I think its important to be here, Crist said. You know, I understand why people are up there and I appreciate that. Electing the next president is an important mission, but protecting Florida is mission number one for me.

Crist has already sent video messages to Floridas delegation, telling them why he isnt there and how they can monitor the threat to the state.
