Care for a campign rumor in your Morning Joe?

On his "Morning Joe" show this morning, former Congressman Joe Scarborough floated the idea that Gov. Charlie Crist might abandon his run for the Senate and switch to a re-election bid.

Said who Scarborough, who grew up in Pensacola:"I think we may have like a Jay Leno issue here, where Charlie Crist may quit his new gig -- running for Senate -- and may actually go back and run for governor again."

It's not a perfect analogy, of course. Leno actually has a new gig and Crist still has his old one. And a Crist/McCollum/Dockery race for governor, while highly interesting, could be a harder slog for Crist.

Mark Liebovich, who just wrote a good article on the Crist/Marco Rubio matchup in the New York Times magazine, said he hasn't heard anything "tangible" about the rumor: "That's something people are talking about, and I wonder if it's something Charlie Crist himself is not having some regret about."
