Crist stuck to his talking points in his message to the crowd.

"It's important to vote so we can raise the minimum wage, get equal pay for women and restoration of rights for our people. It's important, that's why we're here in Jacksonville, Duval County, the First Coast. Get out and vote early," said Crist.
