Crist resigns

Former Florida Governor — and current Democratic gubernatorial nominee — Charlie Crist has resigned from the U.S. House of Representatives, one week after it was confirmed that he would be challenging Gov. Ron DeSantis on the ballot in November.

Crist, 66, announced his intention to resign in a letter written to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday.

"I hereby resign my officeas the Representative for Florida's 13th Congressional District, effective today, Wednesday, August 31, 2022," Crist wrote, adding that it had "been an honor and privilege to represent my childhood home of Pinellas County, Florida."

Though Crist didn't offer an explanation for the resignation, it is thought that he will focus more heavily on his current gubernatorial campaign in the coming months ahead of the November election.
