Former Congressman Kendrick Meek is no Charlie Crist fan.
When the former governor decided to run for Senate, he ultimately left the Republican Party but stayed in the race, all but ensuring a win for Marco Rubio in 2010. That helped syphon votes from the Democrat in the race, Miami Congressman Kendrick Meek.
Crist allies leaked word that Meek was being pressured by top Democrats like Bill Clinton to leave the race. That hurt even more.
Now Crist is on the precipice of running for governor again, in 2014, as a Democrat. And Meek might want a little payback.
Sure, President Obama's campaign is giddy over Crist because he's scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention to drive home the idea that the GOP is too extreme. But Florida Democrats aren't pleased. Among them: Meek.
When asked what he thought of Crist at the convention, Meek smiled and essentially refused to comment.
"I'm not in charge," he said. "I'm going to go get my credentials (for the convention)."
When asked if he'd run for governor against Crist, he smiled: "I'm going to get my credentials."
