The Marco Rubio campaign says Charlie Crist has halted all its TV advertising in the Orlando and Tampa Bay markets where the anti-Rubio spots were airing. That’s presumably a sign that Crist has decided to marshal his resources for later or perhaps drop out altogether.
Meanwhile George LeMieux just appeared on The Daily Rundown on MSNBC and dismissed the prospect of Crist dropping out of the GOP primary and running as a no party affiliation candidate.
“I have every reason to believe that Charlie Crist is running as a Republican and this independent thing will not happen,” LeMieux.
LeMieux said he spoke to Crist this weekend. He said, bizarrely, that the independent question “didn’t even come up.”
