WATCH: Charlie Crist Announces Run For Governor


Congressman and former Governor Charlie Crist is ready re-located from Washington, D.C. to Tallahassee again.

In his first campaign ad, released this morning, Crist says he protected 27,000 acres of the Everglades, cut senior property taxes, saved the jobs of 20,000 teachers and restored voting rights to 150,000 Floridians.

Crist is expected to make his formal announcement during an 11:00 a.m. press conference.

He never ran for reelection. Instead he made a failed run for U.S. Senate in 2010.
