  •  I agree, but I have not heard anyone else (4+ / 0-)

    mentioned. But, because I share your suspicions I keep asking.

    One advantage of Crist, though, is that he apparently is considered to have good chances of winning.  

    His public statements denouncing Scott over voter supression, and on a few other issues have been the most aggressive and progressive as any other nationally conspicuous Floridian, except for Rep Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.  Crist's vociferous and scathing anti Scott suppression comments received more press than anyones, including Schultz, fueling speculation is position for another run at Governor.

    •  Crist is not a progressive. He's an opportunist (5+ / 0-)

      But he probably wouldn't be the worst choice.  He's a FL native and cares about the state especially the environment.   He's good on voter rights which is crucial in Fl.

        Huffpo saying "Progressive Dems Charlie Crist is not you friend."  

        I haven't read it yet, but suspect you just summed it up.

        The question becomes can we find a more progressive Florida Democrat who has comparable chances to win, who want to run?

        I'd like to know sooner than later, because I'm tired of waiting to the last minute on this crucial elections and want to throw as many Republicans out as we can.  Especially, remarkable bad ones like Rick Scott is seems ripe for replacement.

        •  my choice would be Pam Iorio former mayor (0+ / 0-)

          of Tampa.  She's def. a progressive but has never won statewide.   Don't know if progressives will challenge Crist who has been campaigning forever and has the big bucks behind him.
