On Friday, Charlie Crist, a former Republican Governor of Florida, tweeted that he’s now a Democrat. According to a local newspaper, Crist’s tweet, sent from a holiday party at the White House on Friday night, stated, “Proud and honoured to join the Democratic Party in the Home of the President@Barack Obama!” Crist was Governor of Florida in 2007-2011. He left the Republican Party in 2010, when a poll showed he’d lose the nomination to the US Senate to another candidate. He voted for Obama in the past election.
