Florida Democratic House candidate Charlie Crist sent an email reminding people that Wednesday was the start of hurricane season. He also included a link to his campaign donation page.
“Friend, today marks the first day of the 2016 hurricane season,” Crist wrote in the email issued Wednesday afternoon.
“As our former Governor, I’m no stranger to natural disasters. We have to get ready, and stay ready. Your life – and your family’s – may depend on it.”
Underneath Crist’s warning about hurricane season is a link to government advice about what to do when hurricanes strike.
The body of the email did not ask for donations, but below Crist’s message is a large red “donate” button that takes email recipients to a contribution page for Charlie Crist’s campaign
