Crist Might Vote for Obama

The former Florida governor tells The Daily Rundown:

In a rare television interview, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who left the Republican Party during his unsuccessful 2010 U.S. Senate bid, told Chuck Todd on “The Daily Rundown” that he’d consider voting for President Obama in November.

“Consider? Sure, I would consider that,” said Crist. “I really think he’s sincere and genuine. I think we have a lot time, a lot of issues to talk about, but I think, in his heart, he’s trying to do what’s right for the country overall.”

Now a registered Independent, Crist also wouldn’t rule out running for office as a Democrat himself in the future.

“I wouldn’t definitively rule out anything,” the former governor said.
