Crist To Bolt GOP,Run As Independent

No surprise here:

So the word is out: Gov. Charlie Crist is telling key financial backers that he's running for the U.S. Senate with no party affiliation. The announcement is scheduled for 5 p.m. in Straub Park in downtown St. Petersburg.

Well, you can't say you weren't warned.

Now, I wonder...will Crist be giving any of those campaign contributions back to those financial backers? Or to the National Republican Senatorial Committee(NRSC)?

You're kidding me, right? Erick Erickson has the dope on this:

One year ago today, NRSC backed Arlen Specter bolted from the GOP. Today, the media is reporting NRSC backed Charlie Crist is also bolting the GOP.

Seeing a trend here, aren’t we?

Charlie Crist will not only run as an independent in Florida, but he has also reserved all of his air time in Florida through November, or as much as he can.


Because he knows the Club for Growth is going to do what they did to Specter — fund an effort to have Crist donors ask for their money back. Well, because Crist has spent it all on television advertising holds that he may or may not later use, he can say he has none to give back.

Classy, Charlie.

Rubio should still win the seat handily, but without the huge majority he would have otherwise.

please helps me write more gooder!
