Former Florida, GOP Gov. Crist to speak at DNC

One day after announcing his endorsement for President Barack Obama’s reelection, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist was invited to speak at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, next week.

“As America prepares to pick our president for the next four years,” Crist wrote in a Tampa Bay Times, op-ed, yesterday, “I’m confident that President Barack Obama is the right leader for [Florida] and the nation.”

Crist, a former Republican, became an independent in 2010, after failing to garner enough votes to be his state party’s nominee for U.S. Senate, losing again to the man who won the nomination, GOP darling, Sen. Marco Rubio.
