Bob Graham blesses Meek for Senate



With the other big Democrat out of the race, former U.S. Sen. and Gov. Bob Graham endorsed Kendrick Meek for U.S. Senate on Wednesday.

“Kendrick is a son of Florida who has lived a life of public service. As a trooper, he patrolled the highways and byways of our state keeping Floridians safe. When he was elected to the state Legislature, Kendrick made education the centerpiece of his agenda, and now in Congress, he is giving Floridians a much needed voice at the legislative table as the public policy issues affecting the nation for generations to come are debated. He has always put the needs of our state first and during these trying times, it is people of deep substance like Kendrick Meek who will help guide our economy from recession to recovery.  Endorsing Kendrick is an honor and I look forward to spending time with him and the Meek family on the campaign trail.”
