Fla. Gov. Crist to announce 2010 political plans

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The head of the state Republican Party says Florida Gov. Charlie Crist will announce his 2010 political plans Tuesday and hinted that the U.S. Senate is his target.

Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer says he believes Crist has "concluded that the problems and issues that Floridians are facing - high unemployment and the economy - can't be solved in Tallahassee, they need to be solved in Washington, and I believe that's what he's going to do."

The Senate seat he may be seeking is held by Republican Mel Martinez, who is leaving office after one term.

Crist, elected in 2006, sought the same Senate seat in 1998, losing to Democratic incumbent Bob Graham.
