Does Charlie Crist’s Party Swapping Surprise You?
The former governor of Florida has announced he’s joined the Democrat Party. Could another run for the governor’s office be far behind?
First he was a Republican. Then he became an Independent. Now, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has officially joined the ranks of the Democrats.
Crist made the announcement of his recent switch to the Democratic Party on his Twitter feed.
“Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President @Barack Obama,” he tweeted.
Crist, a vocal supporter of Obama, is said to have signed the papers to become a Democrat while visiting the White House. The former Republican dropped his affiliation with that party during his 2010 Senate bid against now Sen. Marco Rubio.
Crist’s announcement has many wondering if he’s positioning himself for a 2014 run against Gov. Rick Scott. Or, perhaps he has another seat in mind?
