Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Kendrick Meek is calling on the star power of former President Bill Clinton this week to help boost his campaign.

Clinton will be appearing with Meek at campaign stops in St. Petersburg on Tuesday and on Wednesday in Orlando, according to Meek’s campaign.

Meek in recent weeks has been calling on some of the biggest names the Democrats have to offer to solidify the party base. He has been dogged by rumors he has denied that he is pulling out of the race due to poor polling numbers against Republican opponent Marco Rubio and independent Gov. Charlie Crist.

Last month, Meek held a rally with former Vice President Al Gore in Tampa at a local U.S. Postal Service union hall.
