Charlie Crist Independent Bid Looking More Likely

Florida Governor Charlie Crist, a candidate for U.S. Senate, has been saying all year that he would run as a Republican in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate. However, on April 15, he vetoed an education bill that had been strongly supported by Florida’s legislative Republicans, and on April 16, Crist’s campaign manager, former Republican U.S. Senator Connie Mack, resigned because of that veto. See this story.

Crist must decide by April 30 which route to take, Republican or independent.

  1. “For weeks, students and teachers held protests, outraged that teachers’ pay could be tied to their students[‘] test grades.”

    Imagine that. Teachers and students are celebrating the veto. I predict Crist will be abandoned by this constituency if he tries to run as an Independent.

  2. Crist should go ahead and join the Democratic Party. Then he can hug Obama all he wants to.

    No politician should have to suffer the pangs of unrequited love.

    (Crist obviously thinks that his veto of the education bill will attract non-Republican votes for him in the general election.)
