Major donors are asking Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to return money contributed to his Senate campaign now that he's running as an independent candidate.

In a letter sent Wednesday, the 20 donors say Crist broke the trust of his supporters by not staying in the Republican primary.

Crist decided to run without the backing of his party after falling far behind former House Speaker Marco Rubio in the polls. Other polling shows Crist has a better chance of winning in a three-way race.

U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek is the Democratic front-runner for the seat now held by George LeMieux, who Crist appointed to fill Sen. Mel Martinez's unexpired term.

A Crist spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call for comment.
