Crist drops anti-abortion language from website

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has dropped strong anti-abortion language from his campaign website as the Republican-turned-independent courts Democrats and independent voters in his Senate bid.

Crist, who moderate reputation didn't sit well with some Republicans, abandoned the GOP to run as an independent.

In a poll released Wednesday, Crist enjoyed a slim lead in a three-way race over tea party favorite Marco Rubio and likely Democratic nominee Rep. Kendrick Meek. The poll found Crist is the best known of the candidates and retained a favorable rating of 52 percent. Among Democrats, his favorability rating was 55 percent.

"Governor Crist believes strongly in the sanctity of life," according to the now-stripped website page. He also cited his support for adoption and opposition to same-sex marriage.

A spokesman for Crist did not have an immediate comment. (Source)
