An independent bid by Gov. Charlie Crist for the U.S. Senate looks imminent. One of his regional chairs and finance committee members, Rep. Tom Grady of Naples, just released this letter to the governor: "This evening, as I reviewed your updated campaign website, I noticed a disheartening fact.

UPDATE: Campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul says, "No Republican references have been scrubbed from our website, period."
