The Big Winner: Charlie Crist

Let’s see. John McCain won the Republican Primary. Amendment 1 passed with more than 60%. Things I didn’t think would happen.

The big reason? Could it be the fact that Governor Charlie Crist took an active role in both?

An interesting note that McCain received almost 50% of the vote in Miami-Dade – thank you to Mel Martinez and McCain’s position on immigration.

Also, Crist endorsed Martinez in the 2004 Senate primary, before the election. Martinez endorsed Crist in the 2006 gubernatorial primary, before the election. Both Crist and Martinez endorsed McCain before the 2008 presidential preference primary election. Martinez won the general. Crist won the general. Will McCain win the general?

One Response to The Big Winner: Charlie Crist

    Well, since amendment 1 passed, we will see what the housing market does in the next 6-12 months. My bet is that we will see a noticeable improvement in “sales” (10-15%) by July 1st, and prices to flatten mid-year, and by Jan 31st, 2009, prices will be “slowly” rising again.

    If this had not passed, i would push back both timetables by at least 8-12 months.
