“I don’t know who he is right now – he’s trying his best to push the Democratic voters in his direction … he wants to climb on my back and get those voters.”

“There aren’t any negotiations … and definitely the governor wasn’t there.”

Kendrick Meek Campaign Statement on Politico story from campaign manager Abe Dyk:

“The article is not true. Kendrick Meek was never dropping out of this race, is never dropping out of this race, and will never drop out of this race. Kendrick Meek will always stand up for the middle class and will not leave Floridians a choice between two lifelong conservative Republicans who only stand with the special interests. Kendrick is the Democratic nominee so if anyone should drop out, it’s Charlie Crist.”
