Because word is that Charlie Crist is heading for the door:
It may be the worst-kept secret in American politics today, and it’s apparently about to become a reality. Reliable sources informed me today that embattled Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, whose early lead in his US Senate Republican primary race against former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio has essentially reversed itself in the polls, is preparing to announce sooner rather than later that he will leave the GOP and continue his run for Senate as an independent. Sources add that the speech Crist will use in his announcement is now being drafted…
Governor Crist – don’t do it. You’ll betray people who have worked hard for you and you’ll still lose – the “best” you can accomplish is to hand the seat to the Democrat. If you’ve an ounce of conservative sense in your body, you’ll know that this is a wrong move.
I’m terribly sorry that you lost – but, you also had your chance. Turns out that 2010 is the Year of the Outsider and you missed the bus on it. You could have done what Rubio did, but you read tea TEA leaves wrong and went with the incorrect program. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again, later – and as a Republican.
Go Independent and you’ll just become an untrustworthy loser.
