Crist beat out former state Senator Nan Rich in Florida's Democratic primary on Tuesday and earned the party's nomination to challenge Republican Governor Rick Scott in the gubernatorial race come November. "Floridians are smart and fortunately we know each other," Crist said after he was declared the primary winner.
