Charlie Crist and Rick Scott

Fla. gov. campaigns have heated up as they criticize each other in recent Internet advertisements.

A video released last week by the Florida Republican Party spurred this video response from democratic candidate Charlie Crist:

"Here's the truth.  The recession wasn't caused by me or by you.  You know who caused it?  Greedy Wall Street bankers and corporate takeover artists.  In other words, guys like Rick Scott."

Last week, a Quinnipiac University poll showed Charlie Crist with a slight lead over the incumbent governor. Other polls show the race as very close.

In Gov. Rick Scott's ad from the Florida Republican Party, it states "800,00 jobs gone. Property values down. Bankruptcies up. More foreclosures than any state. Government went deep in debt.  State borrowing at an all time high. Which governor took Florida to the bottom?  Charlie Crist."
