Crist vetoes FL anti-abortion bill

Charlie Crist (I) inches closer and closer, it seems, to the Democratic Party.

The AP:

Gov. Charlie Crist has vetoed a bill that would have required women seeking an abortion during the first trimester to undergo an ultrasound exam and pay for it. Crist said Friday it put an inappropriate burden on women seeking an abortion. Crist was a Republican until he left the party recently to make an independent bid for the Senate.

To blunt this, Kendrick Meek (D) is holding a press conference with pro-choice groups at 4:00 pm ET.
