Charlie Crist attends his first Democratic Party dinner


Attending the Hillsborough County Democratic Party  at the Tampa Convention Center was former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, now a no-party registrant, attending along with his wife, Carole, who actually is a registered Democrat.

I’m so excited — this is my first Democratic dinner,” she said. “I’m the Democrat, and he’s my guest.”

“I don’t really know that many Democrats yet,” she added. “I’m getting to know the family.”

Carole Crist said she was a registered Republican in New York before she and Crist were married, but switched her Florida registration to Democratic a year ago—“I just made the decision,” she said. “I was very impressed with the president.”
