Crist campaign gets new mouthpiece

After weeks of a barebones campaign team headed up by his sister, Gov. Charlie Crist today announced a new media consultant for his Senate bid: Josh Isay of SDK Knickerbocker. The firm has experience working for independent candidates, including Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

In 2008, Politico described Isay as a "Democratic fixer." Perfect, Crist critics would say, for a candidate  who deserted the Republican party.
