U.S. Senate Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek could be heard on Tampa Bay area radio this morning, before posting to Twitter about a Cuban sandwich he had in West Tampa while chatting with voters.

In a push on the last day before primary elections Tuesday, Meek — along with candidates in several other high-profile races — made the rounds in the Tampa Bay area, hoping to pick up last-minute votes.

Meek appeared this morning in an unlikely place, on Tampa Bay’s highly rated Bubba the Love Sponge Show. Meek took questions from the shock jock on a controversial show many candidates would avoid.

Candidates have recently been hitting the Tampa Bay area hard. The region is part of the famed I-4 corridor, often crucial to any successful race in Florida. Republican gubernatorial candidates Rick Scott and Bill McCollum both also appeared in the region today.
