TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Democratic candidate for governor Charlie Crist is postponing his visit to Cuba.

Crist said earlier this year that the United States should scrap the 52-year-old embargo with the communist-run island. He also said he planned on visiting Cuba on a fact-finding trip.

The Crist campaign issued a statement on Monday that said Crist would visit Cuba "at some point" after the election if there is an opportunity to learn from the people of Cuba and help find opportunities for Florida businesses.

Crist supported the embargo back when he was a Republican.

He has changed his stance now that he is running as a Democrat against incumbent Gov. Rick Scott. Scott criticized Crist for saying he planned to visit the island and said it would help the Castro dictatorship.
