Kendrick Meek's campaign manager, Abe Dyk, said of the Politico story about the U.S. Senate race. "The article is not true. Kendrick Meek was never dropping out of this race, is never dropping out of this race, and will never drop out of this race. Kendrick Meek will always stand up for the middle class and will not leave Floridians a choice between two lifelong conservative Republicans who only stand with the special interests. Kendrick is the Democratic nominee so if anyone should drop out, it's Charlie Crist."
Dyk noted that the article says Meek and Clinton spoke in Jacksonville but they were never together in that city last week. They campaigned together Tuesday in St. Petersburg and Wednesday in Orlando. Meek was in Jacksonville on Thurday, Dyk said, but not with Clinton.
