Crist Senate Announcement Coming Soon

April 28th, 2010 by flanews

Several news outlets are reporting Governor Charlie Crist will drop out of the US Senate Republican Primary and run as a No Party Affiliation candidate.

Crist is scheduled to make an official announcement tomorrow at five oclock in his hometown of St. Petersburg. Today Crist was asked if hes worried about losing endorsements by dropping out of the primary against the partys wishes. Crist doesnt seem to mind.

The endorsement of my wife and my mom and dad matter a lot, so I think that endorsements are nice, but I dont think they are critical, said Crist.

By switching to a No Party Affiliation candidate and not changing races Crist is allowed to keep the seven million dollars he raised as a Republican, although many major party donors are already asking for a refund.
