This should demonstrate to all of the liberals out there what all politicians think of ethnicity and the races. They use the color of a persons skin for political advantage and nothing more. JD
Former President Bill Clinton tried to persuade Florida Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of his U.S. Senate race and support Gov. Charlie Crist’s independent candidacy in hopes of thwarting a victory by Republican Marco Rubio.
People familiar with the matter said the former president and other top national Democrats worry a win by the charismatic Mr. Rubio, a 39-year-old Cuban-American, would make him a political phenomenon capable of boosting the GOP’s chances with Hispanic voters. These people said the conversation occurred during Mr. Clinton’s Florida visit on Oct. 19. Mr. Meek wavered for several days—suggesting to some that he could leave the race—but decided against it.
“They had a conversation about the fact that the prospects of him winning had passed him by and that the only way the Republican would be defeated is to jump on board with Crist,” said a Florida Democrat familiar with the discussion.
The conversation was reported Thursday evening by Politico.
