Political watchers in Florida continue to attempt to figure out if former Governor Charlie Crist is planning to try to get his old job back — this time as a Democrat.
This weekend, he spoke to the Democratic Women’s Club of Lee County, which only fueled the speculation.
Asked by a reporter if he would run as a Democratic candidate for governor, Crist (finally) admitted the idea is on his mind.
“Well I’m thinking about it, there’s no question about that,” said Crist who added he hasn’t made the big decision yet.
“I haven’t reached any conclusion, I’m just taking the opportunity to listen to my fellow Floridians and give it serious thought,” said Crist.
So what would be Crist’s focus if he does choose to join the race?
“Things that I think are important to all of our fellow Floridians: education, the environment, ethics; I mean these are things that aren’t new,” said Crist. “Talking about how we can help our economy move forward, fortunately we’re starting to see that in a small degree and I just hope it continues.”
