Meek Embraces Obama Support in Florida Senate Race

Tallahassee, Florida (AP) --

Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek isn't backing away from his support of President Barack Obama as he tries to win a U.S. Senate seat.

Meek's campaign released a statewide radio ad on Monday, Oct. 11, that Obama recorded for him. In the minute-long ad, Obama lists several
policy areas where Meek has supported the president, including
health care and financial regulation overhauls.

Meek's embrace of Obama comes at a time when the president's
approval rating has suffered and Republicans are making gains by
criticizing his agenda.

But Meek also needs to win back Democratic voters who are
supporting independent Gov. Charlie Crist, who left the Republican
Party in April.

    Meeks should have ran for Governor. He would have had a better chance. Which isn't saying much. Jay speaking of cauldrons and witches, that Ad with the state inmates is a pretty viscious brew. Isn't Sink a member of some kind of liberal progressive coven?

    Hey Jay - are you for real? Having an endorsement from OweBummer is like the final nail being driven in your coffin. The people that are in power right now have driven this country right down into the ground and we have got to get them out of there and start putting the pieces back together again.

    Good Morning whiners and nay sayer and those who forget that the Democrats and the President may well have low ratings but not as low as the republicans. Must be that mushroom tea cooked up in a witches cauldron and served at the madhatters tea party making them all appear to be on a crazy train.
