The Buzz

From the staff of the Tampa Bay Times

The governor's girlfriend. For real.




Carole Rome demurred when the Buzz asked in December if she and Gov. Charlie Crist were more than just friends. "No, no, no. That's silly," Rome said as a friend pulled her away from a lounge at Trump Tower.

But Charlie has charm, apparently.

Last night, Rome joined Crist at the Governor's Mansion for a dinner with legislative leaders, agency heads, lobbyists and reporters. The Tallahassee Democrat's Bill Cotterell took this picture and reported that Crist introduced Rome as "my girlfriend." (for more, see Cotterell's blog)
