These are the key governor’s races to watch this fall –


The Democratic nominee, now-former Rep. Charlie Crist (he resigned from the House to focus on the governor’s race), would likely note that, while Florida hasn’t elected a Democratic governor in nearly three decades, it did elect him to the job more recently. He served one term, from 2007 to 2011, most of it as a Republican before becoming an independent, and then a Democrat in 2012. Crist came within a point of defeating Republican Rick Scott (now the state’s junior senator) in 2014, in his first statewide campaign as a Democrat. Two years later, he won the first of three terms in Congress.
