Our friends at PolitiFact Florida examine Marco Rubio's effort to link Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to President Barack Obama. Rubio is making the case that Crist, his rival in the race for U.S. Senate, is to blame for the federal health care overhaul.
"The path to ObamaCare becoming law all started with Charlie Crist supporting President Obama's $787 billion stimulus," Rubio's campaign said in a recent fundraising e-mail. "Marco is the only candidate you can trust to repeal Obamacare."
