Former Gov. Charlie Crist was serious about wanting to meet presidential man-hug champion Scott Van Duzer.
A few hours after expressing a desire to meet the Fort Pierce pizza parlor owner who hugged and lifted President Obama on Sunday, Crist showed up at Van Duzer’s business this afternoon and, according to Van Duzer, said “You know what I’m here for.”
Van Duzer obliged by lifting Crist off the floor.
“Nothing surprises me any more after the president walked in,” Van Duzer said. He said it was his first time meeting Crist, although he said Crist had helped his non-profit Van Duzer Foundation in 2009 by promoting Be A Hero Day to promote blood donations.
