Here is video of Florida Gov. Charlie Crist today announcing what everyone already knew - that he will abandon the Republican Party and run for the U.S. Senate as an Independent this Fall.
Crist said "it is the right thing to do," for America, for Florida, for the people. He said he knew that by taking this step, he will not have the help of either party, but that he believes he can win.
This is truly one of the worst displays of ego and being a "sore loser" in politics that has ever taken place. Crist is willing to risk leaving the U.S. Senate in Democrat hands out of his own selfish desire to keep Rubio from the Senate.
I don't believe this will work. I really believe Rubio's message and character will win out in the end.
