Former Florida Gov. Crist To Announce Bid For Congress Next Week


Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (D) will announce on Tuesday that he will run for Congress, Politico reported on Friday.

He will run in Florida’s 13th district, the seat currently held by Rep. David Jolly (R-FL). Jolly is running for the open Senate seat in the state.

Crist served as the governor of Florida as a Republican, but then switched to the Democratic party in 2012. He launched a failed bid to challenge Republican Florida Gov. Rock Scott (R) in 2014.
