Dan Webster Added to Senate Shortlist

Charlie Crist has added former state legislator Dan Webster to his ever-growing shortlist of possible Senate appointees. 

The Central Florida political vet has already said he'd be open to the job, because "it would be prety cool."

Webster served in the Florida House for 18 years and became the first Republican speaker of the house in 122 years. He then sought a state Senate seat and served in that arm for ten years, including a stint as majority leader. 

He flirted with running for the U.S. Senate in 2004 but dropped out. 

Crist will stop by Orlando tomorrow to interview Webster about the possibility.
