BREAKING: Resignation Announcement Rocks Florida - Here We Go...

September 1, 2022

Democrat Charlie Crist of Florida has officially resigned from the House of Representatives.

The announcement comes during Crist's challenge on Florida' gubernatorial race in which he is in competition against Ron DeSantis.

Crist said it was "an honor and a privilege" to serve in Congress.

He thanked "the people — my bosses — who have guided my work in Congress since Day One."

Republican Anna Paulina Luna will face off against Democrat Eric Lynn to determine who inherits the seat.

Crist is making the move so that he can presumably focus more time on his challenge to Florida governor Ron DeSantis.
