Kendrick Meek believes Charlie Crist’s independent bid will help him win a seat in the US Senate.
“I think [Crist’s bid] will eventually [help],” Meek said.
In a brief interview, Meek told The Hill many voters in Florida “don’t know I’m running” because he hasn’t gone up with campaign ads yet. He said Crist and Republican Marco Rubio will split the GOP vote, noting there are 750,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans in Florida.
Asked if the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) has been helpful enough, Meek said DSCC Chairman Robert Menendez (N.J.) recently helped him raise funds for his campaign in the Sunshine State.
“Of course,” Meek said with a smile, “they could always do more.”
