Crist Wins Gubernatorial Race Over Davis

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Republican Charlie Crist is Florida's next governor.

Crist defeated Democrat Jim Davis last night to keep the governor's seat in Republican's hands.

Crist promises to move for with Governor Jeb Bush's economic and
education policies.

Bush says Crist will be a quote -- "fine governor."

Crist ran a campaign toward the political middle and used his charm, friendly demeanor and record of helping people over business to appeal to voters.

Davis' call for change wasn't answered. He repeatedly criticized Republican policies, but he also lacked the money and recognition
to compete against Crist.
