Party begs Crist to enter Senate race

The Florida Senate race that keeps on giving. It looks like the Republican National Senatorial has decided that Charlie Crist is their candidate. And, sources close to Crist tell The Hill he is leaning towards running for the seat being vacated by Mel Martinez.

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), who until 2006 was the only Democrat to be elected statewide in Florida for years, said he has talked to close friends of Crist who say the governor seems to be leaning towards running, but will wait until after the Florida Legislature adjourns in May.

“I think Charlie is going to consider switching from governor to senator, but I don’t think he’s going to make a decision until after the annual legislative session,” Nelson said.
