“Former Florida governor and current gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist has written a fascinating book that describes why he left the GOP, and the Republican Party’s descent into anti-Obama madness.”
“Book written by politicians who are running for office are usually full of a lot of fluff with little substance. Gov. Crist along with his co-author Ellis Henican, have written a book that a bird’s eye account of how the Republican Party slipped into madness. It is an easy, and extremely interesting read.”
“Charlie Crist’s The Party’s Over may be one of the best books ever written by a current candidate for office. “
“The Party’s Over is a must-read for anyone who wants to know more about the man who was — and could again be — the governor of the nation’s most-important political swing state.”
After serving as a Republican governor—one who was on the short list for the vice presidency in 2008—Charlie Crist made headlines when he decided to run for the U.S. Senate as an Independent. He was on the front page again when he endorsed President Obama in 2012 and spoke at the Democratic National Convention—and yet again when he officially joined the Democratic Party later that year. In The Party’s Over, he’ll make even more news when he reveals:
- The inside story of his 2010 Senate primary campaign against Marco Rubio, where he learned exactly how vicious the Republican leadership can be.
- His journey from inner circle to persona non grata, thanks to his literal embrace of President Obama.
- His very frank opinions on Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, and other top-tier Republicans.
- Why he believes that Democrats have the right vision for Florida and the nation. • What he’s learned as a member of both parties and why he remains convinced that the two-party system can still work—with the right leadership.
Rather than just rehashing his career, in this book Crist, along with his co-author Ellis Henican, offers a focused indictment of the failings of the Republican Party, naming names and identifying where things went wrong. The Party’s Over is as far from “politics as usual” as you can get.
