The Charlie Crist for Governor campaign will open the campaigns first field office Saturday, April 19th, in Broward County.

The former governor says he's committed to having "boots on the ground" in order to win the election and be able to work to "create jobs, cut wasteful spending, and restore deep cuts to public schools."

The office opening is set to take place at 12:30 p.m. at 302 South University Drive, in Plantation.

And, just as Crist made the announcement regarding the opening of the South Florida campaign headquarters, current Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera to Crist opponent Governor Rick Scott announced he would be having a field office event on the same day at a Scott for Governor Miami campaign location.

A volunteer open house will be taking place at 5455 S.W. 8th Street, Suite 265, in Miami.
