Saxby Chambliss’s office just confirmed that the U.S. senator and Gov. Sonny Perdue will host a March 15 fund-raiser at the Georgian Club for Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.
Crist is locked in a bitter Republican primary with former Florida house speaker Marco Rubio for a U.S. Senate nomination.
Rubio has been championed in Georgia by Erick Erickson of Redstate fame and other GOP hardcores. This won’t make them happy.
On the other hand, Crist has been described by many as the most reluctant governor in the tri-state water negotiations. So maybe he and Perdue can use the event to come to an understanding.
