Meek to launch first TV ad of general



UPDATED with ad. ... Kendrick Meek will introduce his first TV ad of the general election with an appearance on Morning Joe tomorrow.

While it does not mention U.S. Senate opponents Marco Rubio and Charlie Crist, the ad attempts to draw policy contrasts, some of which (pro-choice) are not as clear given Crist's propensity to shift. It will run in Tampa Bay, Orlando, Palm Beach, Broward-Miami, Jacksonville and Gainesville.

With a compressed election schedule and being down in the polls to Crist and Rubio, Democrat Meek has to make a big impact, quickly. The question now is, is this ad enough? "I've always said I'm the David in this race," Meek said on Morning Joe.
