Meek tells Delray Beach supports he’s ‘going to continue to move on to victory.’by Ana Valdes | November 2nd, 2010
DELRAY BEACH — In his final stop in Palm Beach County before polls close at 7 p.m. tonight, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Kendrick Meek remained optimistic about the election, and encouraged dozens of supporters to keep calling last-minute voters.
“We’ve worked very hard,” said Meek this afternoon a Democratic Campaign for Accountability Office in Delray Beach. “We’ll see what the results are tonight, but if work has anything to do with it, we will be OK.”
Meek’s son, Kendrick Jr., met up with his father at the phone bank in Delray Beach, and even managed to make a couple calls himself, said Palm Beach County Democratic State Committeewoman Bunny Steinman.
“We are going to continue to move on to victory,” Meek said, despite the fact that polls still show him trailing independent Gov. Charlie Crist and Republican Marco Rubio.
When asked what was next for Meek, whether or not he’s elected, Meek said he was looking forward to sleeping in after months of campaigning.
But the Miami Congressman added that if elected, his priorities would include improving Social Security and access to healthcare and “getting Floridians back to work.”
Before visiting Delray Beach, the Miami congressman was in Orlando for a rally at the University of Central Florida. Last night, almost toward the end of his 24-hour statewide tour, he rallied with former President Bill Clinton and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink.
