ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The share of donors to Gov. Charlie Crist's campaign who previously had given to Democratic candidates multiplied substantially since he left the GOP to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate.
An Associated Press analysis shows that donors who previously had contributed to President Obama's 2008 campaign made up almost 10 percent of the individual contributors to Crist's campaign in the second quarter of this year. The second quarter covers
fundraising in April, May and June.
By comparison, Obama donors made up only about 2.5 percent of individual contributors to Crist's campaign in the year in which Crist was running as a Republican.
Crist dropped out of the GOP primary last April to run as an independent.
