TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Washington committee that helps Republicans get elected to the Senate believes Gov. Charlie Crist won't run for Senate as a Republican.
National Republican Senatorial Committee executive director Rob Jesmer wrote in an e-mail Monday that he believes there is "zero chance" Crist will run as a Republican.
He said Crist should drop out of the race if he believes he can't win the primary instead of running as an independent candidate. He said the committee was prepared to support Crist's primary opponent, former House Speaker Marco Rubio, if Crist runs as an independent.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney campaigned with Rubio in Tampa on Monday and said Crist shouldn't run as an independent.
