Meek on Obama's visit to his hometown

Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek on whether he will be involved with President Obama's Aug. 18 fundraising trip to Miami: "It's hard to say. I haven't been told anything by the White House, but you usually get notice just a few days or even 48 hours before. I will just be finishing up my bus tour. I will be stumping throughout the state of Florida...The fact that he is coming on the 18th -- he could have planned this trip after the primary. I'm sure I'll be involved in the trip in some way."
