Listen to voicemail Gov. Crist left for Kendrick Meek

30

October

The Buzz obtained the voice mail Gov. Charlie Crist left shortly before 5 a.m. Monday for Kendrick Meek, hoping to meet later that day to set up a deal in which Meek would leave the race. Meek, of course, said no.

Listen to the voicemail Gov. Crist left for Meek.

Crist starts out by referencing a phone call from Meek. Here's what happened, sources say: Crist started calling Meek a lot in the days leading up to the CNN/St. Pete Times debate Sunday in Tampa.

"He was basically phone banking him," a source told The Buzz. After the debate, Crist approached Kendrick, and they spoke very briefly. The calls kept coming and that evening, Meek called Crist, who did not answer.
