Lenny Curry Offers His Draft of Charlie's Democratic Convention Address
Around the State
Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry has sent a video to Democratic National Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston -- what he believes the public may hear from former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist next week at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
“You and President Obama have invited our former governor to address your party's national convention,” Curry wrote in a note accompanying the video.
“In a spirit of bipartisan cooperation, I thought it would be beneficial for you to get a preview of some of the messages you could hear from Charlie Crist. I think you'll find Crist's comments of interest.

"Please don't misunderstand me. If you want to give speaking slots to people who compare President Obama to Jimmy Carter, declare their support for Sarah Palin, and do all this while identifying themselves as "Ronald Reagan Republicans," I can understand why. Because returning to the conservative principles of the Republican Party is the only way we can get our country back on the path to prosperity.
"Less than two years ago, Charlie Crist agreed by saying all these things and more."
