If Charlie Crist would have dropped out, he would have saved himself this trouble.
A pair of Republicans who contributed to Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's (I) campaign for Senate have filed a lawsuit demanding that those donations be returned.
The class action suit seeks refunds for all of Crist's GOP donors, arguing that not refunding Republican donors now that the governor has left the party and is running against a Republican, actually violates state law.
The man leading the legal fight is Florida state Rep. Tom Grady, a former regional chairman of Crist's Senate campaign.
From what I've read, a donation to the candidate is a donation to that candidate. Regardless of party affiliation. It's a waiting game on how it will be played out in court.
Quarterly reports will be out at the end of this month. So we'll see how badly he needs to hold onto what funds he has in his account.
