With all of the tea stuff surrounding the Senate race in FLA, I decided a while back to check out the Democrat in the race. He’s straight up my alley politically. Just watch this ad:
I donated a little to him last month and again tonight. I read a report about the debate the candidates had today, and here’s the takeaway from it:
Moderator John Wilson introduced Meek, who is third in the polls, as a candidate fighting for second place and later asked him if he should drop out and support Crist to keep Rubio from winning. Meek responded forcefully.
“I’ve been in a tough spot before. I fought against Jeb Bush when he said the class size (amendment) was wrong. I fought against George W. Bush when he wanted to privatize Social Security,” Meek said. “I will not — believe this — I will not drop out of this race for any reason. I am nominated by the Democrats of the state of Florida. I am in this race to run to be the next United States senator. And no, I am not running for second.”
Damn straight. There’s not much time left. It’s all hands on deck at this point. I keep remembering how nervous I was on election night in 2008 — oh, hell — I’m nervous every election night. But sometimes, people come to their senses. Here’s hoping FLA voters do. And Texas voters, too.
