ST. PETERSBURG— Charlie Crist is back, saying Tuesday “somebody has to step up” for Democrats in the 13th Congressional District, dismissing criticism that he is perpetual candidate.

“Public service is in my heart,” said Crist at his congressional campaign kickoff in front of Childs Park Recreation Center.

The announcement came in a south St. Petersburg neighborhood expected to be added to the district in a few weeks when the Florida Supreme Court issues a final ruling setting the boundaries of Pinellas County’s redrawn congressional seat.
