Charlie Crist: "This is a tough night"

Gov. Charlie Crist just conceded the race, his disappointment obvious in short remarks to about 150 people at 9 p.m.

Crist -- his eyes visibly reddened, said he believed Rubio would serve Florida admirably as its next senator. He then thanked his family, including campaign manager and sister Margaret and his wife, Carole.

"She's never been through one of these things, poor kid," Crist said of his wife. "I have. It happens."

"This is the greatest state in the country and you are the greatest people in the world," Crist said. "You'll always have my heart. This a tough night. But there is a brighter future ahead."

should have stayed Governor

He got what he deserved.

What a dramatic contrast from four years ago this very night when Charlie Crist was a national phenom and thousands packed his election party. Tonight he couldn't generate a crowd that would fill a Starbucks. He is a pathetic shell of a has-been politician who has revealed himself to be a lying narcissist. What a monumental and humiliating defeat.

Good riddance, Governor. You sucked.

And stuntmanmike, trust me: He gave us hell. And every day we suffer as a result.
