    It was just a matter of time. Charlie Crist, Florida's former Republican governor who relished the tough-on-crime nickname "Chain Gang Charlie" and used to describe himself variously as a "Ronald Reagan Republican" and "Jeb Bush Republican," on Friday signed papers to become a registered Democrat. He did so Friday evening during a Christmas reception at the White House, where President Barack Obama greeted the news with a fist bump for the man who had a higher profile campaigning for Obama's re-election this year than any Florida Democrat.

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is heading to the University of Miami on Wednesday, according to his campaign. The Romney visit will come just three days after a Miami Herald poll showed President Barack Obama’s numbers aren’t where they need to be in Miami-Dade, Florida’s most-populous county, if he wants to carry the Sunshine State. To win Florida, Obama needs a big lead in Miami-Dade, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by 15 percentage points, 44-29 percent. Obama won Miami-Dade by a 16-point margin in 2008. A Sunday Miami Herald poll, however, shows Obama is winning Miami-Dade by only 9 percentage points....
  • Crist Advisor: If Elected, We're Caucusing with Democrats

    Republican turn-coat Charlie Crist is well behind in all Senate polls in Florida. This comes after Crist repeatedly promised that he would drop out of the race should he lose the Republican nomination. He did lose, to Marco Rubio, but continued to run, infuriating voters. He is now down 20 points in the polls to Rubio. But apparently Crist believes that he has one more ace up his sleeve: kowtowing to Democrats. One of Crist's main advisors, John Morgon, explained that Crist no longer even thinks of voting with Republicans: “Crist is going to caucus with the Democrats. I don’t...

    Gov. Charlie Crist, the newly independent candidate for U.S. Senate, never fails to remind audiences, when trying to establish his conservative bona fides, that as a state senator he was known as “Chain-gang Charlie” for legislation to re-establish manacled road crews of convicts in Florida.

    Read Marco's comments, classic smackdown! Today’s U.S. Senatorial debate hosted and televised by Univision was a respectful affair that had its share of memorable moments. The controversial “Dream Act” and the illegal immigration issue were both casting a large shadow over the afternoon debate. All three candidates stood their ground on their previously stated views on illegal immigration. Congressman Meek is completely for granting amnesty to illegals, against the AZ immigration law, and is in favor of the Dream Act. Governor Crist also supports a path to citizenship and is also against the Arizona immigration law. Crist also supports the...

    (Reuters) - Florida Governor Charlie Crist's strategy of taking the best ideas from Democrats and Republicans in his campaign as an independent for a Senate seat is failing. The slight edge Crist held over Republican "Tea Party" favorite Marco Rubio in August has evaporated and turned into a wide deficit as he courts what appears to be a fast- shrinking moderate vote. A Reuters/Ipsos poll on Wednesday showed Rubio far ahead in the three-way race to succeed Republican Senator George LeMieux, with support from 40 percent of likely voters. Crist had 26 percent while Democrat Kendrick Meek had 21 percent....

    Politics: Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's ditching of the Republican Party was supposed to liberate him in his run for U.S. Senate. Now he's frantically trying to escape identification with the Democrats' dismal record. Earlier this month, Crist the political shape shifter told a hall filled with elderly liberal Democrats that he thanked God he was no longer a Republican. But he's obviously also praying that no one will think he's a Democrat. Last Friday, Crist was asked about his position on ObamaCare by CFLN-TV in Orlando. "I would have voted for it, but I think it can be done better,...

    Florida Governor Charlie Crist who has gone from presumptive loser in the Republican primary to go-along-to-get-along candidate in the race for US Senate has given the voters another glimpse of his character this week. After his refusal months ago to return money to Republican donors who requested refunds when he abandoned their party, Mr. Crist has agreed to refund $9,600 in campaign contributions from an indicted political ally who needs the money for his legal fees.

    The Tampa Tribune ^ | August 14, 2010 | WILLIAM MARCH
    TAMPA - A new poll shows Marco Rubio slipping ahead of Gov. Charlie Crist in the U.S. Senate race for the first time. It also suggests that Rep. Kendrick Meek of Miami is turning around his race against Palm Beach real estate investor Jeff Geene in the Democratic Senate primary, moving to a double-digit lead after trailing Greene by substantial margins for the last several weeks. The poll also indicates that Crist, a no-party candidate, is heavily dependent on support from Democrats, and if Democratic voters move toward a nominee of their own party, Crist's support will erode. Crist has...

    Sun Sentinel ^ | 7/14/2010 | Andy Reid
    More than 80 tea party supporters — some wearing T-shirts that said, "Don't Tread on Me" and "Sorry Charlie" — targeted the South Florida Water Management District board meeting, where officials discussed their property tax rate and how the governor's proposed land deal affects the agency's $1 billion budget. The proposed land deal, two years in the making, calls for buying 73,000 acres from U.S. Sugar that could be used to build reservoirs and treatment areas to restore water flows to the Everglades. The Water Management District leads Everglades restoration, and the deal, pushed by Crist, calls for the district...

    Yo mama jokes have no place in a Senate debate. Jeff Greene learned a very important lesson Tuesday. Don't talk about Kendrick Meek's mama. Once he did that at a U.S. Senate debate between the two leading Democrat candidates, Meek unleashed a stare that would scare back some of the oil in the Gulf. Greene, a billionaire, accused Meek of scoring his mother a job with a developer to whom Meek helped steer federal funds. Meek said he was just trying to create jobs and angrily replied: "How dare you attack my mother?" Meek's mother is former U.S. Rep. and...

    The emergence of a politically unknown billionaire self-funder in the Florida Senate race is prompting top Democrats in the state to say publicly what some have been whispering for weeks: If Jeff Greene, who got rich betting on the collapse of the housing market, becomes their nominee, many in the party will have the cover they need to get behind Republican-turned-independent Gov. Charlie Crist. Establishment Democrats in Florida, for now, are sticking with Rep. Kendrick Meek, who lags far behind in early general election polls against Crist and Republican Marco Rubio. Yet with Greene promising to drop at least $40...

    Jacksonville, Fla. (AP) -- Gov. Charlie Crist, who shed the "R" next to his name and replaced it with an "I" — asked for the labor union AFL-CIO's endorsement for Senate on Friday. Crist, an independent candidate, made an unusual appearance before the union's leaders. The union traditionally supports Democratic candidates and Crist, a lifelong Republican until this month, had never sought their help. "I'm here for several reasons. I am hear to learn, I am hear to listen and I am here to show respect. There's not enough of that happening right now in government and politics," Crist said...

    Trailing badly in the polls behind Republican candidate Marco Rubio and newly independent Gov. Charlie Crist, Congressman Kendrick Meek spoke to the AFL-CIO convention in Jacksonville on Saturday morning, desperately seeking their endorsement. Meek, still the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate, received a warm reception, but so did Crist when he spoke to the meeting Friday afternoon. With both Crist and the congressman seeking the AFL-CIO endorsement, Meek attacked the governor in his speech. “I’m here in solidarity with you,” said Meek, who talked about his mother, a longtime Florida politician, and her commitment to working Floridians....
