The Big Loser: Charlie Crist

If Democrats have a bad night tomorrow night it will be a real headache for the White House. But I don’t think there’s any question that the big loser as of this moment is Charlie Crist and, potentially, a string of other moderate Republicans angling for 2010 nominations. Already yesterday, folks on the right who were most vocal in pushing Hoffman’s candidacy were explicitly pointing to Crist as their next target and seeming genuinely confident they could deny him the Florida GOP senate nomination and hand it to Marco Rubio.

In other news Newt Gingrich has a little egg on his face too since he was almost alone among high-profile conservatives defending Scazzofava on party unity and big tent grounds, only to see her drop out and support the Dem.
