Bill Clinton pens carefully/brilliantly written statement about his talks with Kendrick Meek.

Keyest sentence: “I didn’t ask Kendrick to leave the race, nor did Kendrick say that he would.”

Statement by President Bill Clinton:
October 29, 2010

“Kendrick Meek is my close friend. I have supported his campaign from the beginning, though our relationship extends far beyond politics. We did talk last week following a rally in Orlando about the race and it’s challenges. I didn’t ask Kendrick to leave the race, nor did Kendrick say that he would. I told him that how he proceeds was his decision to make and that I would support him regardless.

Over the years, I have watched Kendrick become an able, effective public servant with the strength to fight for what he believes and the common sense to work with people of different parties and points of view. I still believe he could be the best Senator to help Florida and America emerge from the current crisis and build a growing middle class economy.”
