If Charlie Crist ends up running as an Independent in the Florida Senate race and wins, the big question is who will he caucus with? I asked this question in a post a couple of weeks ago and now Crist has been asked about it in an interview (via TPM):
Q If you win as an independent, which party would you caucus with in Washington – the Republicans or Democrats?
A You’re way ahead of me. One day at a time.
Here he has played the typical role of politician when it comes to evading questions, but it is interesting that he doesn’t seem so dedicated to the Republicans to answer that he will caucus with them. Even Joe Lieberman said he would caucus with the Democrats when he was facing losing the primary. The answer really leaves me wondering if Crist isn’t considering jumping ship if he wins as an independent. Now that would be very interesting.
