Crist Wins Democratic Primary In FL Governor's Race
(Undated) -- Charlie Crist is cruising to victory in Florida's Democratic gubernatorial primary. The former Republican Governor will get a chance to unseat GOP incumbent Rick Scott in November. In the primary, Crist easily defeated former state Senate Minority Leader Nan Rich. Governor Scott was an easy winner in the GOP primary. Polling has showed the race between Crist and Scott will be a close one.
Crist was a member of the GOP when he was elected governor in 2006 but switched to independent during an unsuccessful U.S. Senate run in 2010. He became a Democrat in 2012 after announcing earlier that year he was endorsing President Obama for re-election.
