CNN’s Peter Hamby is reporting a new Netflix film about Mitt Romney due out on Friday will do Charlie Crist no favors. “Mitt,” features the candidate’s son, Tag discussing Crist’s endorsement of John McCain during the initial tight 2008 nomination fight. Crist endorsed McCain two days before the Florida Primary.
“Charlie Crist had promised my dad multiple times that he was going to stay neutral,” Tag Romney says. “He talked to many people on our campaign and he promised them all he was going to stay neutral. And now he has announced he is going to endorse John McCain. Now it’s two days before the election. This is a big deal. It’s a tight race, and it’s probably enough to tip it in McCain’s favor.”
Tag Romney continued:
“You do something like this, you call and say, ‘Look I made a decision,” Romney says. “By the way, we have all talked to him and we said, are you going to endorse somebody? And he said no.”
