ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Nearly three years after losing a U.S. Senate campaign and leaving the Florida governor's mansion, Charlie Crist is plotting a political comeback. The man who once identified himself as a Ronald Reagan Republican is gearing up for another gubernatorial bid as a Barack Obama Democrat. Crist is emphasizing the bipartisanship that marked his sole term as governor. Democratic officials have embraced Crist. Republicans and some Democrats are questioning his sincerity. Crist has a record of conflicting positions on key issues. Nevertheless, Florida Democrats are looking for someone to lead them out of the political wilderness. Party leaders see his record as a governing pragmatist as a national model for a party trying to solidify gains among independent voters.
