State Senator Jason Carter (D-Decatur) jumped in the race for governor today, sending the 2014 governor’s race from 0 to 60 faster than a Ferrari.

Charlie Crist announced that he’s running for governor. Anyone shocked? Well, it didn’t take long for the mudslinging to start. Adam Smith from the Tampa Bay Times has the story, and boy, is it a doozy.
