Former governor and gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist spoke Tuesday to the Forum Club of the Palm Beaches about his plans to defeat current Governor Rick Scott (R-Fla.).
Scott's team sent Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera to respond to the media. While Lopez-Cantera was bashing the former governor to the press, things got catty. Crist swooped in and shook his hand.
The conversation was noticeably awkward, as Crist coyly said to Lopez-Cantera, "Good to see you."
"Hey," replied Lopez-Cantera.
Crist asked Lopez-Cantera, "How are you?" to which he replied, "Doing well."
Just before walking away, Crist said, "Say hi to your family for me."
A reporter then called Crist back to comment on Lopez-Cantera's earlier statement.
"He's just gonna get to debate the lieutenant governor candidate. Give me Scott," Crist said.
