Democratic candidate for Governor, Charlie Crist continues his national TV tour, promoting his new book.

Thursday night, he appeared on Hardball with Chris Matthews, and just like he did during his appearance on Morning Joe, he invoked former Governor Jeb Bush's name.

"Jeb Bush said it better than I could ever say it. They are now perceived as anti-women, anti-immigrant, anti-minority, anti-gay couples, anti-environment, anti-education...I mean pretty soon there's nobody left in the room," Crist said. 

Matthews asked Crist how he supposed Bush has remained a member of the Republican party. 

"I don't know; I feel for him," Crist responded. "It's got to be difficult because he's a reasonable guy. I mean, I like Jeb; he is [reasonable], and he was a good governor."

Crist was also supposed to appear on The Colbert Report that night, but 10 News learned he was bumped to Tuesday, February 11th.

The governor candidate is also making headlines for a Miami Herald report that says Scott Rothstein, a convicted South Florida Ponzi schemer, testified that Crist sold some Broward County circuit court judicial appointments in return for political contributions.

Crist has denied those allegations, saying Rothstein is a "known liar."
