Bill Clinton to stump for Kendrick Meek in St. Petersburg

Some Democrats reportedly want Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race for U.S. Senate in order to improve Charlie Crist's chances of beating Marco Rubio in the Nov. 2.

Just don't count former President Bill Clinton among those Democrats.

Meek and Clinton, who almost 10 years after leaving office is still called on to lend his political aura to office seekers, are set to appear Tuesday at a campaign rally in St. Petersburg for the underdog Democrat, and again on Wednesday in Orlando.

"I am honored to have President Clinton rally Floridians behind my campaign for U.S. Senate once again. It's time to take a stand and I am proud to stand with President Clinton," Meek told the St. Petersburg Times.

The St. Petersburg event will be at the USF St. Petersburg Campus Activities Center Core, 131 Sixth Ave. S. Door open at 10:45 a.m.

The events are free and open to the public, but reserved tickets can be obtained by calling (9877) 354-6335 or going to
