Florida PBA Endorses Crist

October 19th, 2009 by flanews

The states largest police union is backing Governor Charlie Crist in the US Senate race.

The Florida Police Benevolent Association announced it is endorsing Crist today during a news conference on the steps of the old capitol. During the 2009 special session to balance the budget, Crist vetoed a spending cut that would have cost more than a hundred correctional officers their jobs. Crist says hes always had tremendous respect for police officers for their efforts to keep the state safe.

I always told people when I was in the state senate, we had the easy part to do. All we had to do was vote right. These people were the ones who really had to stick their neck out and thats why this endorsement today is something I will never forget. Ill always cherish, said Crist.

The Florida PBA has endorsed Crist in all of his major races.
