CRIST SETS UP TRANSITION TEAM...WITH ONE INTERESTING NOTE THAT MAY TELL THE TALE FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS
Governor-elect Charlie Crist spoke to the media Wednesday for the first time after his election victory, announcing two key players to his transition team.
Leading the group will be Coral Gables attorney Roberto Martinez, who helped set up the Attorney General's office for Crist four years ago. The Vice Chairwoman is Kathleen Shanahan, Governor Bush's former Chief of Staff who is considered a critical member of his team during his elections.
One interesting note from the report from New York Times Regional Newspaper Group Tallahassee reporter Joe Follick: Among those present to hear the man who will become Florida's 44th governor in January...a crowd of supporters that included a number of A-list lobbyists from Tallahassee.
You know they're licking their lips, knowing that payday is real soon for those huge contributions to the campaign war chest. And if they can get some of their own people hooked up with good jobs within the Crist administration...so much the better, right???
