Florida Senate Candidate Focuses on Tea Party 'Extremism'

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(FLORIDA) -- A new campaign ad by a Florida Senate candidate aims to turn the November elections into a referendum on the Tea Party. In the ad, Independent Charlie Crist, who trails in the polls against Republican Marco Rubio, turns the focus to Sarah Palin and Tea Party “extremism.”

“Down one road is extremism,” said Crist. “That’s the road Sarah Palin, Marco Rubio and the Tea Party want to take us down. It’s a dangerous road and the polls say I’m the only one who can stop them.”

In recent days, Crist has likened Rubio to a “Sarah Palin fellow,” telling voters that they are responsible for choosing a path for Florida and the rest of the country on Election Day.
