From HuffPo: The White House is chopping down a rumor that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist allegedly called up Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel last week to see if the administration would support him if he chose to run for the Senate as a Democrat.
“It’s not true,” a spokesperson for the Chief of Staff’s office said.
The rumor about a Crist overture to Emanuel had been spreading within Florida’s political circles, before managing, at some point, to make its way to the national press. Several other journalists, apparently, reached out to Emanuel’s office for confirmation.
