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.
