(CNN) – Florida Gov. Charlie Crist endorsed Sen. John McCain Saturday in his bid for the GOP presidential nomination.
"We have a lot of great people who are running for president this year who would all do well," Crist said at a dinner in Saint Petersburg, Florida with McCain.
"I don't think anybody would do better than the man who stands next to me, Sen. John McCain; that's an endorsement."
Later, he told reporters that "I just felt compelled to do it. It’s just a gut call. I think he’s the right guy."
Florida voters go to the polls to cast their ballots for the Republican nomination on Tuesday.
