TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CBSMiami/AP) — After months of speculation, former Florida Gov. Charlie Christ ended it all Friday night by tweeting, “Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President @BarackObama!”
The tweet included a photo of a smiling Crist and his wife Carole as he held up a Florida voter registration application.
Crist was elected the state’s chief executive as a Republican and then ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate as an independent.
