Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's angst over whether to run for the U.S. Senate as an independent may have ended when he decided to do so, but it left his big donors in the Republican Party grappling with their own dilemma: Whether to demand their money back.

It’s a difficult decision for many longtime Crist supporters, according to a report in the Orlando Sentinel.

For example, Ben Hill Griffin III of the big Florida citrus and political family, told the Sentinel: "Right now I'm trying to figure out where he's standing."

Griffin, whose conundrum is whether he wants back the $2,400 he gave the Crist campaign last year, said, "When you figure that out, you let me know, and then I'll tell you."
