Charlie Crist's next step in his effort to to connect with grass-roots Democrats will be on Saturday morning -- in Gov. Rick Scott's hometown of Naples.
Crist is the featured speaker at the monthly meeting of the Democratic Women's Club of Collier County. The club's web site describes Crist as "Very charismatic and exciting," and Crist's face is juxtaposed next to one of Scott with him saying in a cartoon-line balloon: "Why is everybody always pickin' on me?"
The former Republican governor turned Independent Senate candidate turned Democrat will then head east on Alligator Alley and attend the Florida Democrats' annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Hollywood on Saturday night.
