A school district in Florida is asking former Governor, Charlie Crist, to pull a television ad that was filmed at an area high school.  The request comes from the Pinellas County school district.  A school administrator gave Crist permission to film the ad at Saint Petersburg High.  But district officials said that it violated school board policy.  The Republican party of Florida officials complained and demanded that the ad stop airing.  The Crist campaign says they have done nothing wrong since the school gave them permission to film on its campus.
