Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist announced his intention to run for governor of Florida at a rally on St. Petersburg on Monday morning.
It's a notion that's been kicked around in the political landscape for months and one professor at the University of North Florida says its a move Democrats will most likely embrace.
"The Democrats haven't won the governor's office since 1994."
However, Dr. Matthew Corrigan says he doesn't expect Governor Scott to back down.
"Scott's going to try and define Crist as someone you can't trust."
No matter the political strategy, Corrigan's says it will certainly make for an interesting political race.
Republican Party of Florida chairman Lenny Curry says Floridians can't handle another round of Charlie Crist.
"We will remind Floridians that when he's in office he doesn't lead and he doesn't govern."
Curry tells Jacksonville's Morning News Floridians need leadership, which he says they have right now in Rick Scott, who he says has created nearly 365,000 private sector jobs, unlike Crist, who he says lost jobs and created $5 billion in debt.
"The record speaks for itself in clear contrast to the 830,000 jobs lost under Charlie Crist."
Curry says Crist left Floridians hanging when he bailed out of the Governor's office to run for U.S. Senate, a race which he lost.
