Crist won’t decide about US Senate…yet

Rumors have been swirling with increased intensity recently that Govenor Crist may be considering a run for Senator Mel Martinez’ US Senate seat.  However, both Crist, and his former campaign manager and chief staffer, George LeMieux, have denied that possibility.  Today, Crist opened a crack in that closed door just slightly by saying it was likely he would run for re-election as Governor, but he wouldn’t make a final decision until after he talks to his wife – after the regular session of the Florida Legislature is over in May – effectively putting every other Republican candidate’s fundraising efforts on hold.
