Kendrick Meek in Tallahassee

Kendrick Meek is redoubling his efforts to keep his Republican opponent from being Florida's next U.S. Senator. Meek and Independent Charlie Crist have been splitting Democratic votes and trailing Republican Marco Rubio.

Meek says he's not worried about Crist. He says Rubio is his real opponent and he's ready to rumble in this weekend's debate.

"The bottom line is that Marco Rubio needs to buckle is chin strap when he comes in there on Sunday. I'm a former FAMU football player. I'm standing on this red clay here in Tallahassee. I'm just kind of feeling the spirit of an outside linebacker and he's a quarterback and he has to watch out for number 99," said Kendrick Meek, Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate.

99 was Meek's number when he played football at Florida A&M University in the late 80s. Meek is in third place in the U.S. Senate race, according to voter polls. Every day he stays in 3rd place, his chances of being Florida's first black senator become more unlikely.

    Meek needs to stay in the race. It lessens the chance for Boyd to be reelected. And that is a good thing for all of U.S.
