Alex Sink, Corrine Brown endorse Kendrick Meek in Senate race



Democratic Chief Financial Officer and gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink: I am pleased to endorse Congressman Kendrick Meek as a candidate for U.S. Senate. During his time in the state Legislature, Kendrick worked diligently to improve Florida's schools. As a member of Congress, Kendrick has worked on behalf of Florida's families, making his voice heard of issues of housing and providing economic opportunities for Floridians. He has been a strong advocate for Floridians in Congress and I am confident will continue to work tirelessly for the people of Florida as their next U.S. Senator.

U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville: I look forward to campaigning alongside Congressman Meek and working together to deliver the crucial votes in north and central Florida needed for his victory. I have known Kendrick for many years, and his mother, my former colleague Congresswoman Carrie P. Meek, is a close personal friend. Kendrick and I have worked together in the House and I know we will work together when he gets to the Senate. I am confident that he can beat Charlie Crist and provide our state with principled leadership in the U.S. Senate.
