It's becoming increasingly obvious that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist will not be making any headway against Marco Rubio, his teabag-approved opponent for the state's Republican nomination for the U.S. senate. Florida's flag-waving, birth-certificate-suspecting super-patriots clearly prefer the guy who does not understand how money works by about a billion percentage points (according to my personal numbers).
So, looks like Crist is dead, right? Maybe, maybe not. But if Crist is looking to resurrect his chances, some sort of transfiguration definitely will be in order…
Two highly placed and independent sources, speaking strictly on background, tell me that Gov. Charlie Crist is preparing to leave the Republican Party and run as an independent in the race for the U.S. Senate…
Another well-placed source tells me the reason several Crist campaign staffers left recently is because, being committed Republicans, they refused to take part in an independent Senate run by Crist. That’s not confirmed by an independent second source, but it does ring true.
So, has the DNC started contributing funds to the teabaggers yet? If not, they should really consider it. These guys are doing all their work for them.
