Crist, Meek look for early voting buzz



Early voting begins Monday and the Senate campaigns of Charlie Crist, Kendrick Meek and Marco Rubio are hoping to stir up some energy.

Crist begins at 8:15 a.m. with visit to a UPS service center in Clearwater. He will then ride in a bus with Teamsters to the Pinellas County elections center in Largo.

Meek got started Sunday with a early voting rally at Florida Memorial University in Miami Gardens. Tomorrow morning he'll vote in Miami then head to West Palm Beach for an event with Congressman Ted Deutch, state Reps. Mack Bernard and Mark Pafford, and Mayor Lois Frankel.

UPDATE: Just got word Rubio's event has been canceled. He was to appear at a rally at a Denny's in Casselberry, near Orlando, along with congressional candidate Sandy Adams and state Reps. Scott Plakon and Chris Dorworth.
