Crist stumbles on health care question

Pat McMahon Contributor

(CNN) – Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said Friday he “misspoke” when he told a television interviewer that he would have voted for President Obama’s health care reform package.

Crist, engaged in a three-way Senate race against Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek, had previously said he would have voted against the bill were he in Washington at the time.

In an interview Monday with Orlando TV station Central Florida News 13, Crist was asked: “Health care bill, how would you have voted on that?”

Crist responded, “I would have voted for it but I think it can be done better. I really do.”
