Crist sets special election for King's seat

5

August

Gov. Charlie Crist just issued an executive order setting Sept. 15 as the primary date for the election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Jim King, R-Jacksonville.

Former House Speaker John Thrasher is among those who plan to run. Earlier today, King's widow, Linda, issued a statement putting to rest rumors she might run for the seat.

"Jim and I came into this together, and will be leaving the political process together," Mrs. King said.
