Now in his second term in Congress, U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., has moved up into the leadership ranks of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) as the Democrats look to protect their new majority in the U.S. House. 

On Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-Ill., the chairwoman of the DCCC, announced that five regional vice chairs, including Crist, had been elected by her caucus. 

“Elected by their colleagues, these vice chairs will help lead the on-the-ground effort to fortify and expand our new Democratic majority,” the DCCC noted. 

Besides Crist, other new DCCC vice chairs include U.S. Rep. Madeline Dean, D-Penn., U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., U.S. Rep. Scott Peters, D-Calif., and U.S. Rep. Marc Veasy, D-Tex.

“If we want to make meaningful progress on the kitchen table challenges facing families across America, we need to fortify and expand our Democratic majority,” said Bustos. “That’s why I’m so proud to announce the DCCC’s regional vice chairs who will help lead our on the ground efforts to win in 2020. I want to thank Reps. Dean, Crist, Moore, Veasey and Peters for stepping up and taking a leading role to get it done. By working together to draw a clear contrast between our work to lower health care costs and the Washington Republicans failed agenda of stripping protections for people with pre-existing conditions, we’ll ensure a better future for all of our families.”

Crist said he intended to help the DCCC’s Frontline program which aids vulnerable incumbents in swing districts. 

“Democrats are laser-focused on getting real results for hardworking families across America,” said Crist. “I’m proud to serve as a regional vice chair at the DCCC because I’m committed to working with our Frontline members and re-electing our Democratic majority in 2020 so we can continue getting the job done for all Americans.”

Crist has been on the Florida political stage for more than two decades, holding three state Cabinet offices as a Republican,  In 2010, Crist, then serving as governor and still a Republican, was caught by Marco Rubio in the Republican primary in the U.S. Senate race. After losing ground to Rubio, Crist ditched the GOP to run for the Senate with no party affiliation but lost to Rubio. Crist joined the Democrats after the 2012 elections and was his new party’s candidate to take on Gov. Rick Scott in 2014 but he came up short. Bouncing back in 2016, Crist defeated then U.S. Rep. David Jolly, R-Fla. by a slender margin but he easily won a second term last year.

How many times do supposed & proposed "leaders" (like "Charlie the tuna Crist") have to fail before they're consigned to the "dustbin" of history ??? For those of us in Florida..?.. (Not this time either Charlie,..(apparently)...but soon in America,... as they get to learn your "equivocation tap- dance routine"...

Go, go, go, Charlie! And it's definitely telling that you and one of your former political opponents, David Jolly, have determined that the current Republican Party offers NOTHING to anybody in terms of effective governance.

Charlie “the Windsock” Crist: caveat emptor!

And I always though Pennyless County was a Republican stronghold and Hillsborough that of the Democrats!

Learned what a LIAR Crist is when he destroyed Rubio's bill to eliminate residential property taxes in Florida with a 2.5% increase in sales taxes. Crist was lobbied hard by government labor unions. He was NEVER a real republican CRIST IS A LYING LEFT WING DEMOCRAT. NEVER EVER TRUST CRIST - HE IS A SELF ABSORBED POLITICIAN OF THE WORST TYPE.

Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle! TRUMP ... "He was NEVER a real republican" ... but he has ALWAYS been a liar, a cheater, a con man, and a fraudster. And, in truth, "real Republicans" would NEVER support a Trump or the deplorables who, very unfortunately, elected him on a technicality. And, of course TRUMP ... "IS A SELF-ABSORBED POLITICIAN OF THE WORST TYPE."

"Anger management courses" for you "Chuckles"!

Charlie is an ass.

HE WAS NEVER A REPUBLICAN. HE LIED TO US IN FLORIDA ALL ALONG. NEVER SEEN A MORE WORTHLESS POLITICIAN IN MY LIFE. HE BELONGS BACK WITH THE LEGAL SLIME HE COMES FROM AT MORGANS CLASS ACTION LAW FIRM. HEY CHARLIE - GO BACK UNDER THE ROCK WHERE YOU BELONG.

Watch Trump! He's definitely "MORE WORTHLESS"! Champeen quality worthless, in fact!

Grow up!

Agree!

What working families, (especially teachers families) in Florida will remember of Greasy Chuck is how he screwed them and their children by taking the Obama/Gates bribe to tyrannically impose Common Core on them. The biggest scam ever imposed by anyone on Americans who was not a direct descendant of the Clinton's.

Only the committed left wing in Florida backs Charlie. One very good reason to NEVER move to St Pete. ANYONE that would - after he screwed us - would vote for this tanned POS trash is someone I NEVER live near or spend any time. Crist is the best example of a corrupt, lying politician in the Chiles mold. LIARS. AND CRIST IS A LIAR OF THE FIRST MAGNITUDE - LAZY, LYING TRASH. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD VOTE FOR THIS LAZY ASS LIAR?

Divide Florida in half at the northern border of Tampa.

Who "in their right mind" actually voted for Trump in 2016 ... and who "in their right mind" could possibly do it again in 2020 ??? And, of course, the "First Magnitude Liar of All-Time" is your boy Humpty Trumpty! Liar, cheater, con man, and fraudster. (Ask his ex-wives!)

and include this idiot in the southern half!

What a gay prick. Only in St Pete.

Agree!
