GOP Executive Committee

April 30th, 2010 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist’s ten appointments to the Republican Party of Florida’s Executive Committee are in limbo, now that Crist has decided to run as an independent. Party Chairman John Thrasher says the matter is under discussion.

“I’ve got the staff looking at that,” Thrasher said. “I think, technically they’re still OK. He is the governor; he made the appointments when he was Republican. You know, I don’t what the rule on that is. We’ll look at it. I don’t want to be punitive to anybody. Certainly don’t want to do that. They’re all good people. As long as they’re still qualified and willing to serve, I certainly don’t have any problem with them serving.”

Crist has not actually left the Republican Party. He remains a registered republican voter but is running as an independent.
