Former Pres. Clinton to stump for Meek in Orlando todayby Ana Valdes | October 20th, 2010
ORLANDO — Former President Bill Clinton will stump for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kendrick Meek this afternoon at the University of Central Florida, just a day after Clinton stood by the Miami congressman in nearby St. Petersburg to encourage voters to support Meek and vote early.
Meek is banking on Clinton’s support during his two-day visit through the I-4 corridor, an important geographical area in statewide elections, considering he is trailing behind former Republican House Speaker Marco Rubio and no-party Gov. Charlie Crist in the election.
The former president will also be visiting South Florida on Thursday, where he will campaign with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink in an early voting rally.
Clinton and Meek are expected to arrive at the UCF Arena at around 4 p.m., according to the Meek campaign.
