Crist headed to Obama inaugural as White House guest; says no timetable on 2014 decision

by George Bennett | January 18th, 2013

Obama, Crist as members of opposing parties in 2009

Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democratic former Gov. Charlie Crist will be in Washington for President Barack Obama‘s second inaugural.

Crist, a high-profile supporter of Obama in Florida last year, says he and wife Carole got tickets for Monday’s oath-taking ceremonies from the White House and also accepted a “gracious” invitation to attend a reception at the White House on Monday night.

Crist said he has attended several other presidential inaugurations, going back to Ronald Reagan‘s in 1981. He attended Obama’s 2009 inaugural, representing Florida as the Sunshine State’s Republican governor.

“Now I get to go as a Democrat,” said Crist, who left the GOP in 2010 and became a Democrat in December. “It feels wonderful. I feel very comfortable and very welcome. Carole and I appreciate it very much.”

A survey by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling this week showed Crist leading Republican Gov. Rick Scott by a 53-to-39 margin in a hypothetical 2014 match-up. The poll also found Crist the top pick among Florida Democrats to run for governor.

Crist has said he’s considering a run for his old job, but hasn’t set a timetable for making a decision.

“Those numbers are very humbling and it’s very nice to be thought of in that way. I just haven’t reached a decision yet and I think there’s plenty of time,” Crist said. “We’ve come through a pretty strenuous political season and I think people need a break.”

    Governor Scott is awful; I will vote for who runs against him, but lets not forget Governor Crist’s decision to run as an independent.As a democrat I was horrifed that we threw out candidate under the bus (Kendrick Meek); thus paving the way for Marco, because Gov Crist did not seek a second term we have Gov Scott. Better start explaining Charlie.
