Florida Governor Charlie Crist's 5th Engagement

Gov. Charlie Crist is engaged to a woman he met last September during a trip to New York.

The 51-year-old governor popped the question to Carole Rome on Thursday morning at his St. Petersburg apartment. Crist says she said yes without hesitation.

Crist says the couple may plan a fall wedding, most likely a small ceremony in St. Petersburg followed by a larger reception at the governor’s mansion. While Rome has two daughters from a previous marriage, 9 and 11, Crist said he hopes he and Rome can have a child of their own.

Crist’s first marriage ended nearly 30 years ago.

All of that while a good number of people are wondering if America is about to elect its first gay vice president.

And others are wondering if this engagement is for political reasons. Check out the Sun-Sentinel poll.
