Re: Crist Has Risen?

Dan: Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) isn’t so sure:

NRSC Chairman John Cornyn (Texas) said Tuesday that the party with which Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (I) would caucus if he comes to the Senate doesn’t matter.

It doesn’t matter, the chairman of Senate Republicans’ midterm efforts said, because he’s confident GOP candidate Marco Rubio will win.

“My sense is he’s going to be defeated, so it’s a moot point,” Cornyn told reporters at the Capitol when asked if Senate Republicans would welcome Crist into their conference if he’s elected.

When pressed how Republicans would handle it if Crist does prevail, Cornyn said, “We’ll deal with it then.”
