The two underdog candidates in Florida’s Senate race teamed up during a debate Sunday to try to knock down the frontrunner in the contest, Republican Marco Rubio.

Gov. Charlie Crist, second in the polls by a wide margin, used the forum, aired on CNN’s “State of the Union” and held at the University of South Florida, to reinforce his independent label. He said that he was “perhaps the only one at this table” who both supported the 2009 stimulus bill that pumped money into Florida’s troubled economy and who now opposes the expiration of Bush-era tax cuts.
