Charlie Crist, the newly minted independent candidate for the Senate, canceled a sit-down interview that was to have aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
Host Candy Crowley said on the program that “we had requested them from both Governor Crist and Marco Rubio. After initially agreeing to a sit-down interview, Crist backed out.” She did air an interview with Rubio.
Crist lost much of his campaign staff last week after dropping out of the Republican primary, where he was trailing Rubio by double digits, to run as an independent. His campaign did not return a request for comment about the late cancellation.
