Charlie Crist Makes Big Announcement

8:37 am - 12/08/2012
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist announced on Twitter Friday that he has joined the Democratic Party.

Crist was first elected to the governorship as a Republican in 2006. He ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent in 2010, losing a three-way race to Republican Marco Rubio.

Crist’s tweet read:"Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President @Barack Obama!"

His message included a photo of him with an unidentified woman holding up a Florida voter registration application.

Crist signed the papers changing his affiliation from independent to Democrat at a Christmas reception at The White House, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Crist spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte that nominated Obama for a second term, and had campaigned for Obama's reelection in Florida.

A message left for Crist by The Associated Press wasn't immediately returned Friday night.

Crist, 56, is viewed as a potential Democratic challenger to Florida's Republican Gov. Rick Scott in 2014.

I know next to nothing about this guy. Has this been confirmed in some way or is it just rumor that he is gay?
