TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — Rick Scott for Florida campaign chairman Florida State Senator John Thrasher made the following statement in response to Charlie Crist’s St. Petersburg press conference today:

“Charlie Crist thinks he can win this election by doing his best Barack Obama impersonation – all talk and no action. And it’s telling that his new proposal includes no plans for job creation or education. Crist’s record speaks louder than any of his words: billions in tax hikes and double-digit tuition increases – as Florida was losing 832,000 jobs and 28,000 small businesses – was anything but ‘fair’ to the middle class.”
