If Gov. Charlie Crist, ?-Fla., leaves the GOP next hour as expected, he can be expected to lose a lot of the endorsements he’s sporting on his website right now. Right off the bat, that includes Republican Sens. John McCain and Jon Kyl, of Arizona, as well as Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and Puerto Rico Gov. Luis Fortuño. It probably also includes Rep. Vern Buchanan, whose spokeswoman says he is waiting to see what Crist does.
Those are all pretty obvious un-endorsers, as are all of the Republican groups and politicians on the list. But his site features other endorsements as well. We left a message for former Miami Dolphins Coach Don Shula after failing to get a person on the phone at his restauarant's headquarters. Also on the list of endorsers are decorated war veteran Col. Bud Day and America’s Most Wanted star John Walsh.
