GOP Gov. Hints He May Run as Independent

Ad Feedback

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist will announce on Thursday whether he'll drop out of the Republican Senate race or run as an Independent.

When asked how he explain his decision to run without a party, Crist responded, "I don't know, number one, that I'm not, and number two, if I were to, I would say what I said the other day: Things change."

Crist trails his conservative challenger Marco Rubio by more than 20 points in the contest for the August GOP primary.

Yet, one poll shows Crist leading in a three-way race with Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and other top Republicans have encouraged Crist to stay in the primary or drop out -- so not to risk a split vote that could benefit Democrats.

There's little mention of the GOP on Crist's campaign Web site and an endorsement from former GOP committeewoman Sandy Yancey has also been removed.

Dr. Charles Dunn, dean of Regent University's School of Government ,appeared on the Thursday edition of the CBN Newschannel's Midday program to share his insight on the issue. Click play for his comments.
