Crist: 'So Far, So Good'




An emotional Charlie Crist hugged his mother, Nancy, as eight still photographers entered his fifth-floor suite in the Renaissance Vinoy Tuesday night. "It's going to be a great night," Crist said, as his father, Charles Crist, exulted in the background.

"So far, so good," Crist said shortly before 9 p.m. after reporters were allowed into the suite for a brief Q-and-A with the candidate. "I feel good. It's early, but I like what I see so far." Seated on a green couch next to his parents, he said he had not spoken with Democrat Jim Davis. 

The returns suggest Crist it is going to be a great night for Crist.. "The happy warrior's" happiest moment ever. Also in the suite were Crist's sisters, grandchildren, friends, and (a sign of things to come?) FDLE agents.
