It’s official: Former Republican governor Charlie Crist has switched his voter registration to the Democratic Party.
Crist tweeted the change in his party registration late Friday night, saying:
@CharlieCristFL: Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President.
“I’ve had friends for years tell me, ‘You know Charlie, you’re a Democrat and you don’t know it,’ ” Crist said, according to the Tampa Bay Times’ Adam Smith.
Smith writes that President Obama “greeted the news with a fist bump.”
By the way, look how great Charlie’s wife, Carole, looks in this photo.
