Description

Juicy stuff ("Miami New Times") from the former Republican governor of Florida on why he went with his heart and changed political parties.
Charlie Crist was the popular governor of Florida and a rising Republican star. But the changing political landscape left him with a life-changing choice: Join the Tea Party madness? Or stay true to his bipartisan, commonsense beliefs? Charlie knew what was right and became a Democrat in 2012.
"The Party s Over "is the inside story of one brave leader s refusal to surrender to hatred and zeal. From the Florida capital to the presidential campaign trail to Barack Obama s White House, Charlie Crist tells what really derailed his former party, sharing very frank opinions about Sarah Palin, John McCain, Mark Rubio, and other top-tier Republicans. Crist has a uniquely insightful perspective on what works and what doesn t, offering a hopeful vision to getting Washington back on track."
