Clinton pals raising money for Crist in DC
http://weblogs.sun-sentinel.com/news/politics/dcblog/20...

'Charlie Crist plans to party with Democrats Wednesday night to raise money for his independent campaign for the Senate.

But which party will he caucus with if he wins?

The hosts are Nancy Jacobson and Mark Penn, a couple of Democrats with strong ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Jacobson and Penn have invited guests to come to their home in Washington and contribute up to $4,800 a person, or $9,600 per couple, to the Crist campaign.

Crists spokesmen had little to say about the affair, which is closed to the press.

The governor is trying to have it both ways, or rather three ways. He hopes to attract Republicans, Democrats and independents.

Crist, who left the Republican Party in April, cited voter registration numbers that show a continued sense and desire for people to have an independent voice.

When pressed on Tuesday about whether he would caucus with Democrats or Republicans in the Senate, Crist remained coy.

Well see, he told reporters in Tallahassee. Whats most important to me is that the people of Florida have a voice in Washington that cares about them first, instead of the party first.

The first thing is, I win, he said. All of this is hypothetical until that happens.
