Huckabee rips national GOP'ers for backing Crist

The Hill reports that Mike Huckabee -- who has endorsed Marco Rubio -- on Tuesday lit into the National Republican Senatorial Committee for endorsing Charlie Crist in Florida’s open Senate race.

“I’m disgusted that they would take a position in a hotly contested race when you have a quality candidate like Marco Rubio, who was the youngest Speaker in the Florida House,” Huckabee told the newspaper. “This is not just some nameless, faceless guy that decided to throw his name in, who had no chance and no credibility.”

“I thought that their endorsement not only was premature, but was outrageous. And they ought to get behind the guy who would do a whole lot more, in my mind, to unite and fire up Republicans, and that’s Marco Rubio."
