The White House: Charlie Crist is with us on the tax deal

The White House is using outgoing Gov. Charlie Crist's support for President Obama's tax deal in its PR campaign, sending out his statement of support minutes after the guv sent his:

"I have a unique appreciation for leaders who are willing to put aside partisan politics in order to focus on what is best for the people," Crist said. "I commend President Obama for working to secure an agreement that will give our economy the support it needs to continue on the path to recovery.  I call on Congress to act quickly and prevent a tax increase for Floridians and all Americans."

Crist's embrace of Obama's stimulus plan, some may recall, started his slide from the GOP.
