Charlie Crist's Party Switch Labeled 'Bogus' on 'Morning Joe'
With former U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough and the sounds of Jacksonville's own Lynyrd Skynyrd in the background, it was only natural that Florida politics dominated Thursday's edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC. Mika Brzezinski ripped into Gov. Charlie Crist on Thursday’s edition of “Morning Joe” for leaving the Republican Party to continue his bid for the U.S. Senate election as an independent.
Talking about how Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp backed former House Speaker Marco Rubio in the Senate race, Brzezinski labeled Crist’s switch as “bogus.” Noting that some politicians have also turned their backs on their original parties when behind in the polls, she tore into Crist for showing a complete lack of principles.
“People may still fall for it,” she conceded before blasting Crist for having no convictions.
