Will Crist Win?

UPDATE VII: More than a month til election and "Rubio commands a double-digit lead among likely voters in Florida's U.S. Senate race, harnessing a split among Democrats over their nominee Kendrick Meek and independent Gov. Charlie Crist." Read The Associated Press, Rubio leads Crist big in Fla. Senate race.

UPDATE VI: More on those Florida Republi-CON fiscal CONservatives. Read the Sarasota Herald Tribune, Senate hopeful Rubio plagued by money problems and the Sunshine State News, Audit Nails Charlie Crist, Jim Greer For 'Inappropriate' Spending.

UPDATE V: "Florida's three-way Senate race between former state House Speaker Marco Rubio (R), Gov. Charlie Crist (I) and Rep. Kendrick Meek (D) is one of the marquee contests of the 2010 election cycle.

It also appears to have moved in Rubio's favor since the Aug. 24 primary and, as a result, we are moving the Senate contest from "toss up" to "lean Republican".

Read the Washington Post, Florida Senate race moves to "Lean Republican".

UPDATE IV: "Gov. Charlie Crist is the man in the middle in Florida's high-stakes race for the Senate, a candidate without a party whose hopes of moving from Tallahassee to Washington depend on his ability to fend off a squeeze play from his Democratic and Republican rivals. " Read the Washington Post, Florida Senate race starts without a clear favorite.

UPDATE III: Support is dwindling for Crist. Read the Pensacola News Journal, Crist losing ground in Senate race, poll shows.

UPDATE II: Who will Crist's opponents be? Read the Pensacola News Journal, Poll: Scott, Greene lead in races.

It would be ironic if he rode the national anti-incumbent, anti-establishment wave to D.C.

UPDATE: The title says it all. Read Reuters, Crist leads 3-way Senate race in Florida.

As I said before, Crist's decision to run as an Independent might be a wise move. Read the Washington Post, Will Charlie Crist be Florida's Arlen Specter?
