After getting his butt kicked, 3-to-1, in fund-raising by fellow Republican US Senate hopeful, Marco Rubio, there was some speculation that Gov. Charlie Crist would jump the GOP ship.
April 8th: "To put these rumors to rest once and for all, as we have said countless times before, Governor Crist is running for the United States Senate as a Republican. He will not run as an Independent or as a No Party Affiliation," campaign manager Erik Eikenberg said in a prepared statement.
April 19th: “Damn right, I’m staying in this race.” He tells us that he will not run as a Democrat.
“I was never going to do that.” He will either stay in the GOP Senate primary or he will choose to run as an independent by the April 30 deadline. As of today, he says he is “still undecided” about which of those two options he will pursue.
Let us know when you get your head outta the sand, Crisco Charlie...which I'm guessing will be on April 30th, the deadline for declaring yourself as an Independent. Don't worry, if things don't go your way...George Hamilton isn't gonna live forever.
