Meek’s mother, former Congresswoman Carrie Meek, arrives early to son’s campaign partyby Ana Valdes | November 2nd, 2010
KEY BISCAYNE — Former Congresswoman Carrie Meek just arrived at The Rusty Pelican, close to an hour before her son Kendrick is expected to meet his supporters for his campaign party.
The elder Meek has kept to herself for most of her son’s campaign, but this weekend joined him for worship at their Baptist church in Liberty City. Kendrick Meek, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, toured several black churches in South Florida on Sunday to reach out to minority voters.
Carrie Meek, one of Florida’s first black members of Congress, also attended a rally with Vice President Joe Biden in Hollywood in September.
