Crist seeks weekend counsel as he ponders U.S. Senate pick



The rumor mill had suggested Gov. Charlie Crist would announce his choice to fill Sen. Mel Martinez's seat as soon as tomorrow. But it looks like it may not happen so quickly.

"I now have before me one of the most important decisions as your Governor, which is to appoint a person to serve the remainder of Senator Mel Martinez’s term," Crist said in a letter to supporters. "I welcome the counsel of each of you this coming weekend, as I reach this decision."
