Charlie Crist: No regrets on quitting the GOP

“I’m very proud of the campaign we ran, even if I’m disappointed at the outcome,” Crist said. “The last thing I am ever is bitter. I’m just not made that way or wired like that. I’m grateful to the people of my state for the honor of serving them. … I’m the opposite of bitter.”…

Crist consistently refused to say during the campaign which party he intended to caucus with if elected to the Senate. Asked now what he would have decided had he won, Crist still wouldn’t say.

“I would have asked tough questions about employment opportunities for Florida, the economy, who would help us with the national catastrophic [hurricane insurance] fund, then make the decision thereafter,” he said. “It would have depended on the answers to those questions.”
