Charlie Crist Announces Support For Gay Marriage In Florida

Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida who recently became a Democrat, announced his support for gay marriage on Wednesday evening by way of his Facebook page

Some great news: On Tuesday, Delaware became the 11th state to allow marriage equality. And just a few days ago, Rhode Island adopted a similar measure, which followed victories last fall in Maine, Maryland and Washington. I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here.

Back in December, Crist said he regretted having signed a petition calling for a gay marriage ban in the Florida state constitution. 

Crist is considering a challenge to Florida’s current Republican Governor Rick Scott in 2014.
