Crist Drama Gets Weird

As if it weren’t already strange, Crist’s dropout debacle suddenly turns weird with a new revelation from the Wall Street Journal. After calling Kendrick Meek and leaving him a voicemail at 4:50 a.m., Charlie Crist confronted Meek at an event, and tried to get him to drop out of the race:

Mr. Meek said he tried to avoid Mr. Crist, but as he left the stage, “there he was, right in front of me.”

“He said, ‘If you were to drop out and work with me and help me we together can beat Marco Rubio,’” Mr. Meek recalled. “I said, ‘Governor, that’s a non-starter.’

“Then he dug down into his pocket and pulled a small cross out,” Mr. Meek continued. “He said his sister gave it to him and he wanted to give it to me so I would think about it.”
