Gov. Charlie Crist (I-FL), who recently left the Republican Party in order to run for Senate as an independent, says he likes Elena Kagan’s nomination for the Supreme Court — and he seems to like being able to say that, too.
The St. Petersburg Times asked Crist what he thought of Kagan. “A lot. I think she’d do a great job,” Crist said. He also added: “Isn’t that fun.”
Last year, when Crist was still running for Senate as a Republican and facing a stiff challenge from his right by Marco Rubio in the GOP primary, he publicly opposed the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor for Supreme Court. But now, he seems to be enjoying the strange new experience of praising a Democratic nominee for the Supreme Court.
