Sources: Crist leaning toward making Senate run!

The Hill:

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), who until 2006 was the only Democrat to be elected statewide in Florida for years, said he has talked to close friends of Crist who say the governor seems to be leaning towards running, but will wait until after the Florida Legislature adjourns in May.

“I think Charlie is going to consider switching from governor to senator, but I don't think he's going to make a decision until after the annual legislative session,” Nelson said.

UPDATE: Now, it's reported that Crist likely won't be running for Senate:

Crist and those closest to him have all but ruled out a run.
