Analysis:

This is BIG. Mason-Dixon confirming RAS. It really looks like Crist is in the lead here. I’m not that all surprised. We’ll see how long this will last. Nevertheless WE NOW HAVE A FIGHT on our hands. Let’s stand up. Donate to Marco. We can’t allow the Flip-Flopper to take away OUR SENATE SEAT.

The Dog will now concede that baring anything major…this race is between Rubio and Crist…..

The Dog can live with a Crist win…Sorry Kendrick…..CD was right…you have no chance……..
A warning Here…..Crist is likely to a line himself with the Democrats if he wins………
Obama WILL go to bat for him……
Daniel I told ya Rubio is now stuck to the right…..

Update from the NY Post…..

APGov. Charlie Crist

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist will leave the Republican party and run as an Independent in the Florida Senate race, Fox News reported Wednesday.

Crist is set to make an official announcement at 5 pm ET tomorrow in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The Florida governor has said that under no circumstances would he drop out of the race, saying he will do what is best for the voters of Florida.

Crist said that Republicans in Washington want him to stay in the Republican party but voters in Florida have told him they want him to run as an Independent., Fox News reported.

Speculation that the more moderate Crist would leave the Republican party had mounted in recent weeks as his Republican challenger, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio took a commanding lead in polls and received the endorsement of Republican heavyweights such as 2008 presidential hopefuls Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney and former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Crist was trailing Rubio 54 percent to 32 percent Wednesday, according to an average of polls by Realclearpolitics.com.

Crist’s decision to leave his party and run as an independent is not without precedent. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) lost his Democratic primary in 2006 to Ned Lamont before running as an Independent and winning in the general election.

Update…..

From the St. Petersburg Times Political Blog:

Crist’s declaration of independence coming in St Pete

So the word is out: Crist is telling key financial backers that he’s running for senate with no party affiliation. The announcement is scheduled for 5 p.m. in Straub Park in downtown St Petersburg. They’re expecting a small army of media, and it looks like Crist may have no Republican press staffers with him, and will rely on folks like local supporter Greg Truax and finance director Dane Eagle to deal with press inquiries.

His kick-off fundraiser is tentatively scheduled Fisher Island off Miami Beach, where his wife owns a a home.
