Crist Pulls Ads

Adam Smith notes that the U.S. Senate campaign of Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (R) has "halted all its TV advertising in the Orlando and Tampa Bay markets," where it had been airing attack ads on primary opponent Marco Rubio.

Meanwhile, The Hotline reports that top DC Republicans believe it is a "virtual certainty" that Crist will now run as an independent or drop out from the race entirely.

The costs of switching: "As GOP leaders have replaced idle gossip that Crist may switch parties with near certainty that a public announcement is imminent, the party has sought to illustrate the severity of the consequences."
