ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - After decades of renting, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is finally a homeowner.

The 59-year-old and his wife, Carole, have purchased two Tampa Bay area homes in the past month.

The Tampa Bay Times (https://goo.gl/Pt3JbO ) reports that the couple just closed on a 1,480-square-foot cottage in St. Pete Beach. Last month, they bought a condo almost twice that size in Parkshore Plaza in downtown St. Petersburg.

Besides the four years he spent in the Florida Governor’s Mansion, Crist had previously rented a condo at the Bayfront Tower in downtown St. Petersburg.

Crist - a former Republican and current Democrat - has previously expressed interest in running for the U.S. House next year. He told the Times Monday that whether he runs for Congress hinges a lot on how district lines are redrawn.
