Charlie Crist will endorse Rick Kriseman in St. Petersburg mayor's race



St. Petersburg mayoral hopeful Rick Kriseman is getting an endorsement from another heavyweight: Charlie Crist.

Florida's former Republican governor-turned-independent-U.S.-Senate candidate-turned-Democratic-potential-gubernatorial-candidate will endorse Kriseman at 10 a.m. Monday. Crist and Kriseman will both speak at 10 a.m. at Wildwood Recreation Center in the Midtown neighborhood.

The endorsement comes on the heels of Gov. Rick Scott endorsing Mayor Bill Foster's campaign last week. Foster and Kriseman are locked in a tight battle to lead the city for the next four years.
