Charlie Crist embraces Lois Frankel at fundraiser in West Palm Beach


Republican-turned-Independent Charlie Crist embraced and literally kissed on the cheek Democratic congressional candidate Lois Frankel at a private fundraiser in West Palm Beach on Wednesday.

“I am so proud to be here with Lois Frankel,” Crist said. “She and I served in the legislature together in Tallahassee. And, she’s a great public servant. [She] was a great mayor. And, she will be a great member of Congress. God bless you, Lois.”

The fundraiser for Frankel and Patrick Murphy, who is running against Allen West, was headlined by former President Bill Clinton.
