Meek denies thinking about quitting

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.

The Politico article is titled "Bill Clinton pushed Kendrick Meek to quit Florida race." Meek merely denies that he dropped out or will drop out of the race. That's obvious to all of us. Why doesn't Meek address the actual topic of the story: Did Clinton ask him to drop out?

This is a call to arms from the Big Dog to all thinking Democrats to now join forces with Governor Crist. This is the only way to stop the extreme far right Rubio.

If this is true, Meek has a very dark political future. Obviously, he is not winning this one.

And if there was really that much support for the idea that he drop put that Clinton delivered the request, he will forever be blamed for Senator Rubio.

Whether it's true or not, Meeks should have smelled the colada and realized a long time ago that 2010 is not a year to be RWB-running while Black. If every Black person in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale voted for mhim, those votes would be minimize by the panhandle vote. I will always remember this election and as far as I am concerned Kendrick Nader has blood on his hands.

Meek really needs to take one for the team. I'm as progressive as anybody and have no love lost for Crist. But there are just way too many whack jobs in Fl to split the "sane" vote and give the election to the Cuban Mussolini

Is Bill Clinton AGAIN the messenger for an Obama's request and job offer to a candidate they want to drop out of a race...?

If some one should quit is corrupt sleazy Charlie Crist, who was ALREADY beaten by Rubio...

Ironically, any "liberal-democrat" betraying the official Democrat Party candidate in order to vote for slimy Charlie Coward, will be actually voting for the Original Official Candidate of the Traditional National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Washington Establishment.

If Meek cared about his party winning, he wouldn't have run in the first place.

Kendrick is too arrogant to drop out of the race. What Crist and Meek should have done, should do now, is to sit down and see which one of them can beat Rubio and let that person move on! But, they'd rather lose and blame each other while the rest of us suffer. Another case of politics as usual is what this is.

It is time for Meek to fall on sword.
