Crist along with Attorney General Candidate George Sheldon, attended the Faith Forum hosted at the St. John Missionary Baptist Church, hosted by the Faith in Florida organization. In addition to the two candidates for office, the forum also featured several local leaders from a wide range of religions as they delivered their message to the crowd.

While he didn’t mention his predecessor and November opponentRick Scott by name, Crist slammed the current administration’s stance on the restoration of voting rights for felons, immigration, and the protection of children.

“We need to have an executive branch of our government that really cares about kids again” he said “We’ve seen horrific cases at the department of children of families the last four years. You’ve hear about them you’ve read about them. They say the people you surround yourself with in your administration. You want to surround yourself with what John Kennedy said ‘the best and the brightest’. I did” giving credit to Sheldon who he appointed “and with your help and god’s blessing, I’ll do it again.”

The group in attendance came in the bus loads, and the venue was at capacity. They leaned to the left as they cheered Crist’s pledge to raise the minimum wage, healthcare, and supporting policies popular with the dreamers. “I did all of this as a Republican” Crist said “Imagine what I’ll do as a Democrat!”.

He drew a standing ovation from the audience when he talked about his faith…

“Like George (Sheldon), I was raised a Methodist. Raised with three sisters. It makes you appreciate women more and their rights. This I know about God. He is here. He is right here. God watches and he see leaders and what they do. And how they treat or mistreat his people and he’s not happy. But I have hope in 51 days, its coming and it’s good because God is good all of the time”

    Vote Adrian Wyllie for Governor! Also, Bill Wohlsifer for Attorney General and yes on 2.

    Why vote between 2 known liars? Florida, we are fortunate enough not to

    be stuck picking one liar or the other this time. We actually have an

    alternative. Take advantage of the opportunity. Adrian Wyllie deserves

    my vote. He is a honest average Floridian just as you and I , that is

    willing to stand up and do something for the interest of all of us here

    in Florida. The other candidates both Republican and Democrat are owned

    and controlled by special interest, like puppets and will lie to your

    face to gain your vote, then continue the same old agenda that we

    complain about year after year. Time to get off this merry-go-round,

    election after election, thinking it will be any different. Take a

    stand, vote for the candidate that loves this state and is willing to

    take time out of his life, effort and money to SERVE the people of

    Florida and stop voting for these ‘paid for’ career politicians that are

    only out for money and fame and have zero interest in us Floridians.

    Even if it’s just for honesty alone, vote for Adrian Wyllie instead of

    the other two (Scott/Crist) which are proven liars. The choice is yours

    and yours alone, if you want the same old corruption and slap in the

    face, go ahead and vote for one of the two puppets (Scott/Crist) OR do

    what is right for our (yours and your children’s) future and vote for

    Adrian Wyllie. Support him by donating to his campaign, spreading the

    word and contribute to the super brochure program which I think is very

    powerful. Visit his website today
