Meek: Clinton Didn’t Ask Him to Quit Race
(AP) — Rep. Kendrick Meek said he trusts the counsel of longtime friend Bill Clinton, but insists the former president’s advice never included dropping out of the Florida Senate race. Polls indicate the congressman has little chance of winning on Tuesday, badly trailing Gov. Charlie Crist and front-running Republican Marco Rubio. The idea of Meek quitting so voters in his camp would kick their support to the more moderate Crist, instead of the conservative Rubio, has been swirling around the campaigns for some time.
