FLORIDA SENATE—CRIST BACKING NELSON: “Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is opening his wallet and pledging his support to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson,” per the AP. “Crist said Wednesday that he will attend an upcoming fundraiser for the Democratic incumbent that will be held at the home of trial lawyer John Morgan. Former President Bill Clinton will also be at the fundraiser. Crist, who left office in early 2011, currently works at Morgan’s law firm.” Many think Crist wants to run for Nelson’s seat eventually…likely as a Democrat: http://bit.ly/MSCSQC.
