Crist sets election dates to replace Wexler



Gov. Charlie Crist today set a Feb. 2 primary and April 6 general election for the Congressional seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton. Memo here.

Wexler surprised many last month by saying he was leaving Congress in January to join the Center for Middle East Peace and Economic Cooperation, based in Washington. He has endorsed state Sen. Ted Deutch as his replacement.
