Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Monday blasted his old rival, former Gov. Charlie Crist, calling him "a consummate political opportunist that can't be trusted."

The slap from Rubio — who humiliated Crist in the 2010 GOP Senate primary — came after the ex-governor announced he'd be running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Gov. Rick Scott next year, Sunshine State News reported.

Crist joined the Democrats at the end of last year.

"Floridians have a clear choice between a governor with a proven record of job creation, and a consummate political opportunist that can't be trusted,” Rubio said.

“Charlie Crist's governorship was underwhelming, to say the least. Rick Scott has proven himself very capable of cleaning up after Charlie's mess, creating jobs, and restoring Floridians' hope about the future."

Some of Florida’s most prominent Democrats stood with Crist for his formal campaign announcement when he suggested his flexibility is a plus for voters sick of partisan warfare in Washington and Tallahassee, The Washington Post reported.

“The far-right wing seems to want to make much of my party affiliation,” he told cheering supporters and family members, including his Republican parents. “That is precisely what’s wrong with politics today.”
