The Democratic candidate for Florida governor has changed his mind about a lot of things.
At the Miami Herald, Marc Caputo has a review of former-Republican-turned-Independent-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist's new book The Party's Over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat. Caputo notes the book serves as both a 2014 gubernatorial campaign manifesto and an autobiography of Crist's switch from Republican to Democrat, notably skipping over some history for his shift.
Crist has taken a lot of positions over the years on issues. Here are 10 of his biggest flip-flops.
In a 1998 Senate debate, as a Republican, he said he thinks abortion is a personal issue and not a government issue. He later on adds he does support a partial-birth abortion ban.
As attorney general of Florida and a gubernatorial candidate in 2006, Crist said he would sign a bill that would ban abortion in Florida except in cases of rape and incest.
On his 2006 "on the issues" page, Crist says we should do more to "Promote a Culture of Life at every stage of life."
