FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Polls are now open across much of Florida as former Gov. Charlie Crist tries to make history by becoming the first person in Florida to be a gubernatorial nominee as a Republican and a Democrat.

Crist is the favorite to win Tuesday's Democratic primary for the chance to face Republican Gov. Rick Scott in November.

Former Senate Democratic Leader Nan Rich is hoping for an upset. She's campaigned for governor for 28 months -- longer than Crist has been a Democrat.

But Crist is better known and has raised about $20 for every $1 Rich has raised and most political observers think he'll have an easy victory.

Scott plans to tour the state on primary day, but he's already been focused on November.
