Meek makes long-awaited Palm Beach County appearance tonightby George Bennett | May 14th, 2010
It’s a fund-raiser with a $20.10-a-head minimum intended to draw a big crowd.
Meek hasn’t spent much time campaigning in heavily Democratic Palm Beach County, fueling speculation that he’ll lose Democratic votes to Republican-turned-independent Gov. Charlie Crist in the Senate race.County Commissioner Burt Aaronson, who’s traditionally been regarded as an important Democratic gatekeeper, said Meek contacted him for the first time this week. Aaronson this week said he’s undecided in the Democratic primary between party establishment favorite Meek and former Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre (who has spoken with Aaronson twice) and Palm Beach billionaire Jeff Greene (who entered the race April 30 and has already reached out to Aaronson).
