Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (R) is now denying that he endorsed the stimulus package, the same package he promoted at a rally with President Obama in February.

In an interview with CNN last night, Crist said he didn't actually endorse the plan, but rather realized it was going to pass and wanted Florida to get its fair share.

"Well, I didn't endorse it," he said.  "You know, I didn't even have a vote on the darned thing. But I understood that it was going to pass and I wanted to be able to utilize it for the benefit of my fellow Floridians."

It's true that as governor Crist didn't have a vote on the package, but he has reportedly said that he would have voted for it if he were in the Senate. 

Crist is facing an increasingly tough primary from State House Speaker Marco Rubio, who has repeatedly attacked Crist's support for the stimulus package.
