Gov. Charlie Crist (R-FL) told the National Review that he will not drop out of the Florida Senate race, declaring: “damn right. I’m staying in this race.”

Crist said that he would never run as a Democrat, but is “still undecided” about whether to continue running in the Republican primary — in which he is trailing badly in the polls — or to run as an independent. “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead,” said Crist.“I’m being very thoughtful and deliberate,” Crist explained. “I’ve got a big decision to make. I haven’t concluded anything yet, but I’m getting a lot of counsel, lots of advice, and I’m listening to it. My fellow Floridians want a public servant who puts people first over politics.”

“This is a world full of wonderful opportunity,” Crist concluded. “I love fighting for the people of Florida and will continue to fight for them. It’s always exhilarating.”
