Following his graduation, Charlie focused on passing the bar exam, however, he needed three attempts to finally pass it. His first job was as general counsel to Minor League Baseball, with headquarters in St. Petersburg. However, Charlie became fond of politics, and joined the Republican Party, and from 1986 started building his name as a politician. He first ran for a state Senate seat in Pnellas County, however, he lost in a runnoff. Two years later he was one of the integral parts in running the successful campaign of Connie Mack III for the United States Senate.
