Please read the comments to the linked piece…they are interesting

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio debated Sunday morning on Fox, where the two Senate hopefuls sparred over everything from the stimulus to the price of Rubio’s haircuts.

Crist also confirmed that, despite Rubio leading the governor by double digits in the Republican Senate primary race (an average of 25.4 points in March, according to Real Clear Politics data), he would be running as a Republican and not entering the race as an independent. And if elected, he said, he would not ditch the office to run for the Oval Office in 2012.

Crist also defended his acceptance of stimulus funds, and said as a senator he would have voted for the $787 billion package.

“I think it was the right thing to do at the time,” Crist said, noting that the economy “was falling off a cliff.”

“Things have started to stabilize now and they’re getting better in Florida,” he added.

Rubio contended that record 12.2 percent unemployment in the state showed otherwise. “If it’s bad for America it couldn’t possibly be good for your state,” he said.

    It doesn’t matter. Crist will still lose to Rubio. Rubio has controlled this Debate. AND he’ll lose with a good margin to Rubio.
