Sen. John Cornyn warns Gov. Charlie Crist on indie run



Politico: Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is warning Florida Gov. Charlie Crist not to pursue a Senate bid as an independent, saying that the National Republican Senatorial Committee would work to defeat him if he abandoned the Republican label. ... "I would think that would be the end of his political career as a Republican," Cornyn, chairman of the NRSC, told Politico. "So I doubt that will happen. My hope is that this is all resolved in the Republican primary by Florida voters."
