MIAMI, April 28 (BestGrowthStock) – Florida Governor Charlie Crist,
who is trailing rival Marco Rubio in the race for the
Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate, will announce on
Thursday he will run as an independent in the November
elections, U.S. media reports said on Wednesday.

Crist’s U.S. Senate campaign has announced that the
governor will hold a “candidate qualifying event” on Thursday
at 5 p.m (2100 GMT) in St. Petersburg, where he lives. He was
expected to make his decision public then.

The St. Petersburg Times and Fox News reported on Wednesday
in blogs on their web sites that Crist was telling financial
backers and allies that he would break with the Republicans for
the Senate race. The Orlando Sentinel reported the same on its
web site.
