In the straw poll, Snitker defeated Charlie Crist who is the incumbent Governor of Florida. Crist is currently running for a Senate seat this election, and the straw poll suggests that voters are tired of politicians that do not fight for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.
Snitker commented at the event and said, "I don’t believe that government is truly listening to the people and it’s not a left or a right issue, it’s more of a big government issue versus those looking for a more limited federal government."
