Former Republican Florida Gov. Charlie Crist says he has signed papers to change his voter registration to Democratic, a likely first step toward mounting a campaign for office – possibly for governor in 2014 – as a Democrat.

Crist, who attended a holiday party at the White House with his wife, Carole, on Friday night, sent out a tweet from the event saying, “Proud to join the Democratic Party in the home of the President, @Barack Obama!”

Crist tweeted a photo of himself, holding a voter registration form, with Carole at the White House party.
