GOP wants Florida Governor Charlie Crist to run for Senate

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Charlie Crist for Senate? He's being heavily recruited:

National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (Texas) on Wednesday said efforts are ongoing to persuade Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (R) to run for his state’s open Senate seat.

“We’re going to continue to visit. It’s very early in the game, but recruitment is important and the ability to be competitive on the financial front is very important too. We’re working on both of those fronts,” Cornyn told The Hill.

Few Florida politicians can match Crist’s popularity and fundraising potential. The governor, a centrist who would be up for reelection in 2010, has denied any interest in running for the seat being vacated by Sen. Mel Martinez (R), but Cornyn, who has spoken to the governor about the race, suggested Crist may be open to persuasion.
Crist has also been heavily recruited to be a practicing heterosexual. Crist did get married last year, after all.
