More than a decade after walking away from the governor’s office, U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist launched a campaign to try to unseat Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2022.

Crist, a St. Petersburg Democrat, was the first major candidate to formally enter the 2022 gubernatorial race. But DeSantis’ political committee has been piling up cash in anticipation of a reelection campaign, and Democratic Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried and Democratic U.S. Rep. Val Demings of Orlando are widely expected to run.
