Arizona Democrats Have Found Their Charlie Crist

Democrats have been struggling to find a candidate to run in Arizona’s 1st Congressional district after Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick launched her Senate campaign. Faced with a weak bench of potential candidates, Democrats have opened up the Florida playbook and will be depending on a Charlie Crist-like candidate.

Tom O’Halleran, who is a Republican turned Independent turned Democrat, will formally announce his campaign for Congress today. Unfortunately for O’Halleran, the Crist strategy has only resulted in disappointing losses.
