    President Joe Biden is nominating former Congressman and Florida’s 44th Governor, Charlie Crist, as the next U.S. Ambassador to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a United Nations agency. If confirmed by the Senate, Crist would serve as America’s representative on the ICAO Council, a 36-member body composed of electees from the ICAO’s 193 member states. He’d replace famed pilot Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger, whose “miracle” landing on the Hudson River in 2009 was dramatized in a feature film seven years later. Sullenberger has served as ICAO ambassador since December 2021. [Snip] In November 2021, the U.S. set a goal of...

    Newsweek ^ | 22 Feb 23 | Jon Jackson
    ormer President Donald Trump on Tuesday criticized Republican Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, but a compliment he paid to a Democrat in a message about DeSantis upset some of his supporters. In two posts on his Truth Social platform, Trump railed about the coverage DeSantis recently received on Fox News during the former president's recent trip to New York City. One of the messages included an aside about Charlie Crist, who ran on the Democratic ticket against DeSantis in Florida's gubernatorial race last year. "Florida was doing GREAT long before Ron DeSanctus got there. People are fleeing from New York...

    This is hilarious. ‘CBS Mornings’ spent all day in Democrat precincts in Florida that Joe Biden ‘won’ in 2020 and they could not find one Charlie Crist supporter. Democrat grifter Charlie Crist is running against highly popular Republican incumbent Governor Ron DeSantis. Republicans boosted turnout in traditionally blue Miami-Dade.

    Miami Herald ^ | 11/1 | ALEX ROARTY AND SHERIDAN WALL
    Few Republican politicians elicit as much anger from Democrats as Gov. Ron DeSantis. But the animus they feel toward Florida’s incumbent governor hasn’t translated into big contributions for his Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist. The state’s Democratic gubernatorial nominee has struggled to raise the kind of big money necessary to compete in this year’s race against DeSantis, according to a review of campaign finance records, collecting less cash than some of the state’s previous nominees for governor, Democratic gubernatorial candidates in other states, and even the state’s U.S. Senate nominee this year, Val Demings. The shortfall has been a surprise to...

    A video emerging from Rep. Charlie Crist’s (D-FL) journey on the campaign trail earlier this year shows the Democrat gubernatorial candidate, in his own words, affirming that he would be open to forced masking in Florida, over two years after the initial emergence of the Chinese coronavirus. Crist, who is challenging Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in the Sunshine State’s gubernatorial race, spoke to a group in Wilton Manors, Florida, earlier this year and was asked if he would be “open to mandating or regulating masks” as the leader of the state. Video of that exchange has now surfaced across social...

    Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), who is challenging Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) in Florida’s gubernatorial race, appears to be fundraising on the assertion that DeSantis “utterly failed to respond” to Hurricane Ian. “Folks, DeSantis utterly failed to respond to the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian,” a Crist fundraising email, shared by the DeSantis War Room, reads. “Hurricane Ian was a devastating storm that required REAL leadership — something that DeSantis is incapable of,” the email continues, asking to find 362 Americans “willing to agree with Charlie” and ultimately force DeSantis to “reckon” with his supposed failures:

Feliks Mats got arrested when he was a student at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN A twenty-six-year-old giving alcohol to a minor may or may not concern voters, but someone has been trying hard to erase all the evidence.
