Former Gov. Crist tries to revive political career

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist is trying to revive his political career as a Democrat, running for a U.S. House seat against an incumbent Republican who's been shunned by his own party after speaking out about campaign fundraising.

Crist faces U.S. Rep. David Jolly in Florida's 13th Congressional District.

The 60-year-old Crist has the hometown advantage in St. Petersburg where he was raised. The former lawyer is running in a redrawn district with 20,000 more Democrats than Republicans following a court-ordered redistricting.

The 43-year-old Jolly, who's represented the district since 2014, is seen as the underdog in the race despite being the incumbent.
