READER POLL: Who Won the Crist-Rubio Debate?
In front of a national TV audience on Sunday, Republican U.S. Senate candidates Gov. Charlie Crist and former House Speaker Marco Rubio sparred over their stances on the federal economic stimulus package, health care, social security, immigration and their records in state government.
Both Crist and Rubio sought to turn each other’s time in Tallahassee into a disadvantage, with Rubio saying Crist had failed to live up to his predecessor, former Gov. Jeb Bush, who is thought to be a mentor to the former speaker.
In response, Crist hammered Rubio on his tenure as speaker of the House for a plan to replace property taxes with increases in the state sales tax Crist said would have been the largest tax increase in Florida history. Crist also accused Rubio of inaction on the issue of illegal immigration during his time leading the Florida House.
