CHARLIE CRIST, WITH 3 "I's":

Crist Mentor Resigns as Campaign Chair After Guv Vetoes Merit Pay (Teddy Davis, April 16, 2010, ABC News)

According to the Associated Press, Mack wrote a two-paragraph letter Thursday evening to his one-time protege, saying Crist was wrong to veto a bill (SB 6) that would have made it easier to fire teachers and tie their pay to student test scores.

The veto puts Crist, a moderate Republican, at odds with his fellow Republicans in the GOP-controlled State Legislature.

The veto has also renewed speculation that Crist might abandon a Republican Senate primary in which he is trailing Marco Rubio and instead run for the Senate as an independent.
