No-Party Gov. Charlie Crist ended his bid to be Florida's next U.S. Senator in a brief speech before a small crowd of supporters.
You could sense his regret. You can't help but know that Crist is asking himself countless "what ifs."
"This has been an interesting race to say the least," Crist said as he thanked his campaign team for "doing a great job against tremendous odds."
"It's a tough night," he said. "But there's a bright future ahead of us."
Whether there is a bright future for Crist is still unclear.
