The Party's Over: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP and I Became a Democratby Charlie Crist and Ellis Henican
Synopses & Reviews
Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida, spent years in the party's inner circle. In this no-holds-barred memoir, he shows why he switched sides and became a Democrat.
After serving as a Republican governor — one who was on the short list for the vice presidency in 2008 — Charlie Crist made headlines when he decided to run for the U.S. Senate as an Independent. He was on the front page again when he endorsed President Obama in 2012 and spoke at the Democratic National Convention — and yet again when he officially joined the Democratic Party later that year. In The Party's Over, he'll make even more news when he reveals:
Rather than just rehashing his career, in this book Crist offers a focused indictment of the failings of the Republican Party, naming names and identifying where things went wrong. The Party's Over is as far from politics as usual” as you can get.
“The Party's Over is a must-read for anyone who wants to know more about the man who was — and could again be — the governor of the nations most-important political swing state.” The Miami Herald
