“I love him. He loves Florida. He’s coming home to help us put the people back in charge," said Crist, a former Republican governor.
Crist had originally tapped Bill Hyers, who managed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's 2013 campaign, to be his campaign manager. But shortly after signing on with Crist, Hyers left.
Crist has tapped several former Obama hands for his effort against Gov. Rick Scott (R), including Jim Messina and Ted Goff.
The Tampa Bay Times first reported this week that Crist was poised to hire Khan.
