Two Palm Beach Democrats come out for Crist



Palm Beach County Commissioners Burt Aaronson and Shelley Vana, Democrats, said today they are backing Charlie Crist for Senate. Vana called on Democrat Kendrick Meek to drop out. No way, says Meek.

Meantime, state Sen. Jeremy Ring, D-Margate, tells the Sun Sentinel that Crist needs to bail. “Kendrick Meek got on the ballot by petition. He beat a billionaire [Jeff Greene] in the primary by 26 points. The Democratic voters of this state overwhelmingly chose him to be our nominee. No one chose Charlie Crist to be in the race."
