Crist Might Attend Presidential Visit

January 26th, 2010 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist says if he can find time in his schedule he will visit President Barack Obama in Tampa Thursday.

Last February Crist appeared on state with the President to rally support for an economic stimulus package. The move has hurt Crist in his race against Marco Rubio for US Senate. Crist says if his meeting with the University Systems Board of Governors wraps up quickly hell attend the Presidents event.

Currently I have plans to be in Tampa on Thursday for the Board of Governors, we are going to announce the new membership. If we can work it out logistically, Ill be with him, said Crist.

The last time Mr. Obama was in Florida, Crist said he didnt even know the president was visiting.
