The latest from the Will-Meek-Make-It-Meter: Campaign says it has collected at least the 112,000 signatures needed

in Statewide by

Just got off of a phone call with Kendrick Meek’s campaign manager Abe Dyk and he says that the campaign has collected 112,000 signatures to date and will collect 130,000 by the deadline of March 29 – enough to make Meek the first candidate in Florida to qualify for the ballot by petition. So, of course, I am going to upgrade the Will Meek Make It Meter? to its highest level: “I’ve collected 112,000 signatures and all I got was…

Revising Florida Democrats’ to-do list

At this point, it does not appear likely Congressman Kendrick Meek will collect the requisite number of voters’ signatures to place his name on the ballot. Even if Meek does end up collecting the requisite number of signatures, it won’t matter. He has wasted any chance of seizing the momentum from the two GOP candidates who have captured the attention of the nation’s political class. Rather than investing further in Meek’s fledgling campaign, as Meek’s campaign manager Abe Dyk suggests…

At this point, it does not appear likely Congressman Kendrick Meek will collect the requisite number of voters’ signatures to place his name on the ballot. According to the Florida Division of Elections, Meek has collected 37,420 verified signatures through March 1. That means he has to collect another 75,056 signatures before March 29 – a daunting 2,680 good signatures a day.

This last week, I cruised around the Bahamas, soaking up the sun while downing frothy boat drinks. Not once did I think about Charlie Crist or Marco Rubio or Kendrick Meek. What a vacation! But now that I’ve been home for a few days and read through my Google Alerts, I have this sinking feeling that the candidates for US Senate are about to jump the shark. And it’s only February.
