Charlie Crist to make “major campaign announcement” tomorrow morning at 10:30

FALSE ALARM: Looks like the "BIG" announcement will be that JFK Jr will endorse his candidacy. BIG DEAL!


If Crist defects to the Democrats and Meek withdraws, Crist could give Rubio a run for his money. The announcement will be well attended I am sure.

All I have for you is this one-line post from Mark Halperin at Time relaying that it’ll come at 10:30 a.m. in Deerfield Beach. No other news source, including the Florida papers, has anything about it. Could be something innocuous — touting the Schwarzenegger endorsement, maybe — or it could be … farewell?

Crist met privately Monday with a group of influential Palm Beach County Democratic clubs, who in turn formally called on Meek to quit the race. The request was supposed to come in a meeting with Palm Beach County Commissioner Burt Aaronson today, but Meek canceled after learning of the agenda.

“We waited this long to see what’s happened with Kendrick Meek’s fundraising and polling and so forth. I’m 99.8 percent certain it’s hopeless for Meek,” said Jay Weitz, chairman of the People’s Choice PAC, which is made up largely of Democratic clubs representing thousands of voters.

Meek has repeatedly scoffed at the notion that he might bow out. Former President Bill Clinton will be campaigning with him in St. Petersburg and Orlando next week.
