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.
