Cavalry coming to help Kendrick Meek against Jeff Greene



Center for Responsive Politics: The Florida political operative who was the finance director of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign in the Sunshine State has created a political committee to tout the Senate candidacy of Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.), pictured right, using unlimited contributions, the Center for Responsive Politics has learned.

Ben Pollara, a partner at the political consulting and fund-raising firm Wolfram Group, filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to establish the “Florida Is Not For Sale” committee in late July. The operation is designed to run independent expenditures supporting Meek.  

On Friday, Pollara amended that paperwork to include a form letter stating the group plans on raising unlimited sums to get its message to voters.
