Charlie Crist Open to Backing Obama in November

Former Gov. Charlie Crist -- who left the Republican party in 2010 after being overtaken in the U.S. Senate primary by Marco Rubio to continue his bid with no party affiliation -- told Chuck Todd of MSNBC that he would be open to backing President Barack Obama in November and would consider running for office down the road as a Democrat.

First Read has the former governors answer when asked if he was thinking about backing Obama:

Consider? Sure, I would consider that, said Crist. I really think hes sincere and genuine. I think we have a lot of time, a lot of issues to talk about, but I think, in his heart, hes trying to do whats right for the country overall.
