So Democrat Charlie Crist is going to open a field office Saturday in the Democratic heartland of Broward County.
What's a Republican to do? Have a field-office event on the same day in Miami in a Republican area.
So, for you political masochists, on Saturday morning from 10-11, Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera and Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day will hold a "volunteer open house" in Miami. Location: 5455 SW 8th St, Suite 265.
“Floridians deserve a Governor who will work with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to strengthen small businesses that create jobs, cut wasteful spending, and restore deep cuts to public schools,” said Crist. “We are committed to having the boots on the ground to make that happen and that starts in Broward County.”
Then, at 12:30, Crist opens his first field office at 320 South University Drive, Plantation, FL 33324. Crist's press release came with a statement from campaign manager Omar Khan: “We are a metrics and data driven campaign and a huge part of that will be our grassroots field operation. Broward County is critically important to Governor Crist, so we’re excited to get started there."
Earlier in the week, Gov. Rick Scott's deputy campaign manager, Tim Saler, said the GOP data effort was, well, bigger.
