Charlie Crist is running for governor, again



Charlie Crist is running for Florida governor as a Democrat.

The worst-kept secret in politics was confirmed Friday afternoon when the Republican Party of Florida spotted Crist’s official filing with the Division of Elections.

The former Republican governor-turned Democrat plans a formal announcement Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Petersburg’s Albert Whitted Park, 480 Bayshore Dr. SE.

Crist has been courting top Democratic fundraisers from across the state and country in recent months, has launched a new website, and lately is often accompanied by top Democratic strategist Steve Schale. The sleuths at the Florida Republican Party this week also found a “CHARLIE CRIST FOR GOVERNOR — 2014” logo online.
