Preparations under way for Meek campaign party in Key Biscayne

by Ana Valdes | November 2nd, 2010

KEY BISCAYNE — The stage is all lit up and a huge American flag hangs from the back wall, while a large screen is already playing YouTube videos of Kendrick Meek and will eventually display tonight’s election results.

The second floor ballroom at the popular Rusty Pelican in Key Biscayne is where Democrat Meek will find out whether he will become Florida’s next Senator.

Meek, who for the last 24 hours has been touring the state looking for last minute support, is expected to arrive with his wife and children at around 8:30 p.m., according to his campaign.

Earlier today, Meek and his son, Kendrick Jr., visited a phone bank in Delray Beach, where he encouraged volunteers to keep calling voters and thanked them for their hard work.

“We’ll see what the results are tonight, but if work has anything to do with it, we will be ok,” Meek said.

After his Palm Beach County stop, Meek drove by a precinct in North Miami, where voters on the street chanted “Kendrick, Kendrick.”

The Miami Congressman trails independent Gov. Charlie Crist and Republican Marco Rubio, but he’s campaigned until the very last minute.

“We are going to continue to move on to victory,” he said.

    Kendrick Meek is a stand-up dude

    Charlie Crist is no better than a $15 crackhead prostitute working Federal Hgwy

    (But Marco is The Man)

    It’s time for the black community leaders to sit down and talk to the democrat leadership in S FL and DEMAND representation and support.

    Kudos to Meek for continuing in his race. It’s easier to comeback after a loss than it is to quit a race.

    Demand representation, demand support. You got neither with the thugs of the democrat party in S FL.

    The black community needs new, young leadership in S FL, not the old guard.
