All of Florida is on pins and needles as we await the announcement of who will replace outgoing Senator Mel Martinez. Insiders are saying Crist will make his announcement by Thursday.

Crist has a list of eight he will choose from, including an advisor, two former congressmen, a former state legislator and former attorney general.
Who will it be?
