TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 4 (UPI) -- The Republican Party of Florida made good on its promise to auction an oil painting of Gov. Charlie Crist, now running for the U.S. Senate as an independent.
State party officials posted the framed portrait on eBay Monday under the banner "Help the Republican Party of FL Get Our Money Back!" CNN reported Tuesday.
The product listing was heavy on sarcasm and disdain for the first-term governor who bolted from the Republican Party in his bid to become one of Florida's two U.S. senators.
"Canvas is naturally sensitive to changes of temperature and humidity, just as the Charlie Crist's political convictions are subject to fluctuations in poll numbers," one disclaimer on the auction page reads.
A Florida GOP spokeswoman said the party spent several thousand dollars on the painting.
Bidding ends Monday.
