A soon-to-be-released Netflix documentary about Mitt Romney could cause Charlie Crist some heartburn, CNN is reporting:
“Dem or Republican, I’ll do whatever I can to bury that iguana,” said Will Ritter, a former Romney aide and GOP consultant. “For as long as I live. For free.”
The film, set to be released Friday, chronicles Romney’s two presidential campaigns with “intimate behind-the-scenes footage and candid interviews with the candidate and his family,” CNN reported.
The film also depicts Crist as a back-stabber who promised to endorse all three primary candidates — John McCain, Rudy Giuliani and Romney — before finally coming out in support of McCain, according to the CNN story:
“The documentary captures the exact moment Romney finds out about Crist’s endorsement. An anguished-looking Romney, wearing a golf shirt and slumped in his hotel room chair, is informed of the news by phone.
In the next shot, his son Tagg delivers the back story straight to camera.
“Charlie Crist had promised my dad multiple times that he was going to stay neutral,” he says. “He talked to many people on our campaign and he promised them all he was going to stay neutral. And now he has announced he is going to endorse John McCain. Now it’s two days before the election. This is a big deal. It’s a tight race, and it’s probably enough to tip it in McCain’s favor.”
