Jeff Greene's final day is heavy on TV, radio, light on interaction with voters



While Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kendrick Meek was scheduled to begin his morning at 4:30 a.m. visiting a Miami bus stop, rival Jeff Greene had no public events on his schedule other than voting at a Palm Beach fire station.

Greene arrived at Palm Beach Fire Station No. 3 shortly before 9:30 a.m., driving himself in a black Escalade with a yellow "Baby on board" sticker. As he spoke with reporters before voting, a man on a bicycle pedaled past and yelled "Jeff Greene's a scam."

Campaign workers said Greene planned to spend Tuesday doing radio interviews and would address TV reporters at noon at the West Palm Beach Marriott, the site of Greene's party Tuesday night.

"It's been a long four months ... hard work," Greene said after voting. "But I tell you I definitely am more committed than ever today to getting to work in Washington and solving the very complex and difficult problems facing the state of Florida."
