Charlie Crist bringing Joe Kennedy to campaign in St. Pete
U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist hopes for a boost from the Kennedy clan next month. The Tampa Democrat will speak at a rally with U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy III in St. Petersburg in early August.
The #ProtectOurCare event will take place Aug. 7 at Williams Park, where a line-up of advocates will discuss ways to preserve and improve affordable healthcare in the state of Florida. An event announcement makes clear ObamaCare will also be a hot topic of discussion, with the two Democratic congressmen ready to discuss “fighting attempts to undermine protections for those with pre-existing conditions, holding ‘Big Pharma’ accountable for rising prescription drug prices, and calling on Florida to expand Medicaid.”
On Twitter, Crist made clear his own support for the Affordable Care Act and desire to expand Medicaid in Florida. He also says he expects a fight over requirements for insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions.
