Florida Senate hopeful Charlie Crist has bagged yet another big endorsement, this time from a Democrat. Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will endorse the Florida governor's independent campaign in an event later this morning. The endorsement comes less than 24 hours after Crist picked up the support of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger,



DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – A member of the Kennedy clan said Wednesday that Democratic Congressman Kendrick Meek cannot win the Florida Senate race and instead endorsed independent Gov. Charlie Crist.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said Crist has a better shot than Meek at beating tea party-backed Republican Marco Rubio, who has a big lead in recent polls. Kennedy called the Florida Senate race the most critical in the country and urged voters to combat what he calls the radical tea party movement by voting for Crist.

Rubio "has a very radical vision, a very narrow vision, an I-can-be-as-stupid-as-I-want vision of this country, and that has a little bit of appeal to people when they're angry — but it is not a good long-term plan," Kennedy told dozens of people gathered at a South Florida diner for a Crist campaign event.

Asked if Meek should drop out, Kennedy pointed to his dismal poll numbers. "At some point it becomes clear in political life we all have to make choices that are bigger than ourselves," he said. "I hope that Kendrick will look at the entire landscape as he assesses the future of this election." A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Crist and Meek trailing Rubio by double digits. Rubio had 44 percent of the vote, compared to 30 percent for Crist and 22 percent for Democratic candidate Meek.

Thank you jesus finally someone in the dnc & rnc with a lick of sense. The DNC leadership here in florida and the RNC's Rubio are both waaay corrupted. Gov.Crist is the best man for this job.. he can best represent FLA in DC.

This helps Rubio. It shows how desperate some are AND it possibly indicates that IF Elected Crist will not line up with the GOP. A deal may have been struck.
