JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor turned Democratic gubernatorial candidate, will embark on a statewide tour of Florida beginning Monday, February 10th to promote the release of his new book, “The Party’s Over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democrat.”

Jacksonville will be one of the stops on Crist's book tour. He will visit Books-A-Million, located on 9400 Atlantic Boulevard, at 7:00 p.m.

After a week of national interviews, radio and television appearances, Crist will launch his book tour in Ft. Myers, Florida, on the fifth anniversary of “The Hug” – the fateful moment in Crist’s career when he figuratively and literally embraced President Barack Obama and his stimulus program and, in doing so, began the popular centrist’s travel along a path that would see him leave the GOP and become a Democrat.
