Crist Delivers McCain's Message in Florida Radio Ad
By Ed O'Keefe
Gov. Charlie Crist (R-Fla.) seizes on the McCain campaign "Joe the Plumber/Spread the Wealth Around" talking points in a new campaign radio commercial airing in the Sunshine State.
With audio quality that sounds similar to those robocalls placed by both campaigns, Crist says that McCain "will lower your taxes. He will stop wasteful government spending. And John McCain knows that people don't want to 'spread the wealth.' He knows that Congress should let you keep more of your money, and not take it away. Thank you very much."
The announcer continues: "Your savings, your job and your financial security are under siege. Congressional liberals will make it worse. Congressional liberals plan nearly a trillion dollars in new government spending. To pay for it, Congressional liberals promise higher taxes on American families making over $42,000 a year. Barack Obama and Congressional liberals call it spreading the wealth around, we call it higher taxes, bigger government. Either way, it will cost you. Stop 'em before they make it worse."
The ad repeats arguments the McCain camp and RNC have delivered in recent weeks, most of them disputed by the Obama campaign and others.
As Dan Balz noted today, the latest polling suggests Obama leads McCain in Florida by only 5 points, a lead much smaller than in other battleground states. So at this point, the more McCain can use the popular governor to help convince undecided Floridians, the better for his campaign.
