Meek picks up more Broward endorsements

U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek who is facing a serious Democratic primary challenge from Jeff Greene in his U.S. Senate bid announced more than three dozen endorsements today mostly from Broward and Miami-Dade.

The endorsements of 39 officials include Miami Dade Commissioner Sally Heyman, Dania Beach Vice Mayor Anne Castro, Lauderhill Commissioner Hayward Benson, Pembroke Pines City Commissioner Carl Shechter, Sunrise Mayor Roger Wishner, Miramar City Commissioner Yvonne Garth, Deerfield Beach Mayor Peggy Noland and West Park Mayor Eric Jones.

One notable mayor is missing: County Mayor Ken Keechl who told the Herald in May that he had not made an endorsement.

"There are a number of Democrats who have said to me 'I don't know this guy' and I think Charlie can be considered a Democrat," Keechl said.

Keechl's cell phone voicemail stated that he was out of town and we could not reach him.

But since May Meek has made more appearances in Broward and has picked up several endorsements from local elected officials.
