U.S. Senate Race & the Politics of Independence
Will Gov. Charlie Crist avoid the Republican primary in the U.S. Senate race by running as a candidate with no party affiliation? By the end of the week, we’ll know Crist’s plans. What he’s been thinking -- and its ramifications -- have been the talk of Florida politics since the governor vetoed Senate Bill 6, the controversial teacher-tenure bill. Many analysts say a no-party run is the only way Crist can avoid losing the primary to Marco Rubio and would be his best hope for winning the race. We’ll look at the strategy and the politics of an independent run for Crist.
