McCain gets Florida governor's endorsement

(CNN) - Florida Gov. Charlie Crist endorsed Sen. John McCain Saturday in his bid for the GOP presidential nomination.

"We have a lot of great people who are running for president this year who would all do well," Crist said at a dinner in Saint Petersburg, Florida with McCain.

"I don't think anybody would do better than the man who stands next to me, Sen. John McCain; that's an endorsement."

Later, he told reporters that "I just felt compelled to do it.  It’s just a gut call.  I think he’s the right guy."

Florida voters go to the polls to cast their ballots for the Republican nomination on Tuesday.

    How can ANYONE LIKE McCain??? By his own words he doesn't understand economics. He is McAmnesty and his UNSERVED Arizona Constituency know it, that is why they are filing petitions to get SOME enforcement of immigration laws in their state. And if I hear that turkey necked yellow teeth grinch say one more time that he was a "foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution" I think I will puke! I voted for Reagan in 1984 – and McCain is NO foot soldier – more like a door stop. IF THE GOP ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO PICK HIM FOR THEIR CANDIDACY, I WILL VOTE INDEPENDENT!!!!
