President Barack Obama has invited (and been accepted) Florida Republican Governor Charlie Crist to join him at a Florida stimulus event tomorrow:
Statements from the President and Gov. Crist about tomorrow's event are included below.
"I look forward to traveling to Ft. Meyers tomorrow to talk to Floridians about how we get our nation's economy back on track. Gov. Crist and I have seen firsthand the toll that this economic crisis has taken on the American people, and we agree that we can't allow politics to get in the way of urgent relief for the millions of families and small businesses that need it," said President Barack Obama.

"Florida has taken prudent steps to cut taxes for our people and balance our budget in these increasingly difficult times. Any attempts at federal stimulus must prioritize job creation and targeted tax relief for small business owners. I am eager to welcome President Obama to the Sunshine State as he continues to work hard to reignite the US economy," said Florida Governor Charlie Crist.
This is smart bipartisanship. Not only will Crist support the President on the stimulus, he will advocate for putting back the $40B in state aid the Beltway "bipartisan" BSers in the Senate took out of the bill. Well done Mr. President.
