Crist: I've never felt more comfortable

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Charlie Crist is back on the campaign trail, raising money to serve the people of Florida again.

The attorney and politician says he wants to be the state's next governor. This time he is running as a Democrat.

"I know it's where I want to be. I have never felt more comfortable politically than being a Democrat today," Crist said.

Crist previously served Florida as a Republican governor and ran independently for U.S.Senate.

He is now running against current Republican Governor Rick Scott who is up for re-election.

"I want to be governor again because I love Florida as much as I do," said Crist. "I am disappointed in the current administration."

Crist sat down with Fox 13's Shayla Reaves for an exclusive interview Sunday.

Topics addressed included education, expanding the Port of Tampa and a high speed rail system.

"High speed rail is a great idea and it's perfect for Florida," Crist said.

Crist also weighed in on Florida's controversial stand your ground law. The lawn gained national attention during the trail of George Zimmerman,

acquitted in the shooting death of an unarmed teen, Trayvon Martin.

"I think it needs to be fixed. I think everybody should have the right to protect themselves. I think that is a basic fundamental

right everybody believes in," said Crist. "What I see as a problem with the statute is someone who begins an altercation ends up sort

of benefiting from this law and the sad conclusion is somebody died"
