Governor Charlie Crist is still searching for a replacement for former US Senator Mel Martinez.

Martinez stepped down on August 7th. Since then Crist has been on a statewide interviewing campaign to find a replacement. Crist says hell make a decision soon.

Its been a very thorough process as I wanted it to be and hopefully we will be able to make a decision by the end of this week, early part of next week, said Crist.
