Opinion

By Greg C. Truax

Congressman Charlie Crist, the leading Democratic nominee for Governor of Florida, has announced a major endorsement.

It’s House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, widely viewed as one of the most polarizing elected officials in national politics.

The video endorsement by Pelosi, a San Francisco progressive and a prominent face of the Democratic Party, effectively nationalizes the Florida governor’s race.  Besides Florida issues, there will be sharper focus on the record of the Democratic controlled Congress and White House.

Candidate Crist will have a lot of explaining to do as he highlights Pelosi’s endorsement at a midterm election, which is a referendum on the incumbent president and his party. Inflation is at a 40 year high, polling shows that just 28 percent of Americans say the country is on the right track and President Biden’s approval rating is down to 41 percent.
