in Statewide by

At this point, the prospect of Congressman Kendrick Meek actually collecting the requisite number of voters’ signatures to place his name on the ballot looks about as likely as Charlie Crist winning the GOP nomination: still possible, but no longer probable. According to the Florida Division of Elections, Meek has collected 35,553 verified signatures through February 22.

Kendrick Meek’s signature-gathering effort is exactly where I projected it to be — further behind than where campaign says

in Peter/Statewide by
