Gov. Crist to run for U.S. Senate seat

May 13, 2009


— Popular GOP Gov. Charlie Crist said Tuesday he will run for U.S. Senate instead of re-election next year, a possible stepping stone to a presidential bid and a welcome jolt for a struggling Republican Party desperate to keep Florida in its column.

Crist, 52, instantly becomes the front-runner in the Senate race. He has maintained approval ratings in the high 60 percent range despite the state’s gloomy economy, budget cuts, a high foreclosure rate and the highest unemployment level since 1975. That popularity is credited to an unwavering optimism, bipartisan attitude and the projection of a sense that he cares.

The bigger question is, Keithmiles05, is how low the despicable Democrats will stoop to smear Crist. Of course Democrats claim to be champions of gay rights.

Joke. Wow!

I have no idea if he is or not, but I believe he will win the Senate seat.

It's known that he is gay so wondering if he'll support those who are gay.
