Florida Governor Charlie Crist EXPANDS Early Voting Hours

Why would a republican governor expand the early voting hours, effective immediately from 7A-7P in Florida?

Florida Governor Charlie Crist, to the shock and dismay of Florida Republicans, just moved to extend early voting hours, a move likely to widen the Democrats' lead under a program on which the Obama campaign has intensely focused.

"He just blew Florida for John McCain," one plugged in Florida Republican just told me.

The hours in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties have been 3/4 hour wait time. It was the republican state legislature that changed the hours to 8 from 12. Now Crist signs an executive order, effective immediately to extend the early voting hours?

Are we seeing sour grapes for McCain? If Crist was picked for VP, Obama would not have a serious chance in the state.

Let's be honest, the GOP are afraid of the lines they are seeing for early voting, especially in Florida and Georgia. There are seeing new, young, and AA voters coming out at a record number and they are afraid. Besides, we all know they are not about everybody voting. The GOP are notorious for tricks and mischief to suppress the voter turnout.

Charlie Crist, may be sending a political message to McCain, but is doing the right thing.
