Crist: Democrats ‘ought to strengthen up’ and support Obamacare

(CNN) – Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who’s looking to get his old job back - this time as a Democrat - argued Sunday that Democrats need to “strengthen up” and own Obamacare in this year’s midterms.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Crist panned his former party, the GOP, but admitted that the Sunshine State’s economy has improved under Republican Gov. Rick Scott—though he argued it could be “a lot better.”

GOP campaign group tries to define candidates early with new video

Washington (CNN) - At the Republican National Convention in 2012, Mitt Romney's campaign featured a series of touching, biographical videos that showed a more personal side to the former Massachusetts governor.

Poll: Clinton, Christie basically tied in Virginia

(CNN) – A new poll in the crucial battleground state of Virginia indicates voters in the commonwealth have a more favorable view of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie than other potential GOP presidential candidates.

And if Christie were to overcome the traffic scandal that's dogging his administration, he would be considered the best potential match against Hillary Clinton in Virginia, according to the Christopher Newport University survey released Monday.
