[1] As a Republican, Crist served as a legislator, a commissioner of education, state attorney general and governor, but left the party in the spring of 2010 after it became obvious that Senator-elect Marco Rubio, a Tea Party favorite, was going to pose a strong challenge to him in the Republican primary.
