Democrat Strategists Turning to Crist in Florida Senate Race

Editor’s Note – And you were worried that Crist would split the conservative vote! 

It appears that the Democrat party is beginning to abandon scandal marred Kendrick Meek, and are cozing up to good ol’ Charlie, who’s starting to make RINO’s look like solid, staunch conservatives.  It’s a wonder that Crist didn’t just avoid the suspense and register as a Democrat. 

Crist definitely seems to be in the cat bird’s seat right now, and the eyes of the nation are eagerly awaiting the outcome of this race. 

If he’s successful, it will be a strong referendum on the science of political strategics’ over principles and values.

And, just as the upcoming election in November is critical to the direction this nation takes, so too will this race be in determining the type of candidate that we can expect to see in the future – which, with a Crist victory, will be more of the same that has led us to the brink of destruction.

WASHINGTON — Top Democratic strategists are abandoning their party’s frontrunner in the Florida Senate race in favor of Independent Charlie Crist, who bolted the Republican party over the state party’s rightward lurch toward the Tea Party.

SKDKnickerbocker, a leading Democratic political strategy and communications firm, has agreed to work on Crist’s up-hill campaign as an independent for the U.S. Senate.

The decision will be widely viewed as a slap at Democratic frontrunner Rep. Kendrick Meek, who is trailing badly in the polls and many Democrats believe is hopeless for winning in November.

Making it all the more ominous for Meek is that SKDKnickerbocker is helmed by Anita Dunn, who most recently served as senior advisor to President Obama and is one of the administration’s most valued political operators outside the White House.

One Democrat familiar with the situation tamped down the notion that Democrats and the White House are walking away from Meek pointing out that N.Y. strategist Josh Isay, and not Dunn, will be working on the campaign.

But said another Democrat: “They never would have signed on to the Crist campaign unless it was okay at the highest levels.”
