Meek will remain in South Florida, family returns to D.C. today, campaign manager saysby Ana Valdes | November 3rd, 2010
Kendrick Meek’s campaign manager, Abe Dyk, said the Miami congressman spent the day with his family in Miami, and would take his wife and children to the airport this afternoon for their return to Washington D.C.
But Meek, who yesterday finalized an almost two-year campaign for the U.S. Senate, will remain in South Florida, Dyk added.
Earlier today, Dyk said his staff had given Meek the day off.
“I don’t think he’s had a day off in a year and 10 months,” Dyk said, adding that he had no information about what was next for Meek.
“I’m not sure whether he knows what’s next,” Dyk said.
After speaking with supporters last night and congratulating Republican Marco Rubio on his victory, Meek said he was looking forward to sleeping in for a couple days. He also had plans to spend time with his family and enjoy one of his favorite hobbies — fishing.
