Interesting story on Politico this morning that outlines the perceived lack of support the President is showing for the Democratic Senate candidate in Florida, the weak and badly trailing Kendrick Meek. And the Congressional Black Caucus is not happy. Complicating their concerns is the fear that ignoring Meek sends a message to Dems that it's okay to support Charlie Crist.
Florida's black Democrats assert that if the President doesn't start enthusiastically supporting Meek, they won't campaign for him in 2012.
What amazes me about it is with Rubio and Crist splitting up GOP votes, why Meek isn't running away with it. He remains in the teens in virtually all polling. This is a fascinating race-and one I fear will not end well for our team.
