Charlie Crist continues to be a media sensation and his run for Congress in the St Petersburg based CD-13 appeared to be straight forward. But Democratic Primary challenger Eric Lynn has solidified much of his support locally, and with nine months to go until the primary, Crist is not shoe-in for the nomination. Also, the continued saga over redistricting means that it is possible the new seat may not be as overwhelmingly Democratic-performing as expected and given the strong tradition of moderate Republicans in Pinellas County, perhaps a GOPer can still win the seat.
The CD-13 primary and the field operations of the Democratic Party were topics discussed this week by our TFS writers, Katy Burnett, Brook Hines and Kartik Krishnaiyer. The audio discussion below runs 12:10.
