Take note liberals. This is what happens when you force ideological purity on your party and it"s candidates. Independent runs like Charlie Crist are going to make what was a sure GOP senate seat up for grabs by the democratic candidate or now a former republican one. That might well if he wins, decide to caucus with the democrats in the US Senate. Everything in politics is an action/reaction affair, and what seems the purest course to take often comes back to bite you in the ass.
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist "is telling key financial backers that he's running for Senate with no party affiliation," the St. Petersburg Times reports.
The announcement is scheduled for 5 p.m. tomorrow in St. Petersburg.
