During the Dems’ much much-written-about conference call today with reporters to dispel rumors that U.S. Senate candidate Kendrick Meek was pondering dropping out of the three-way race with Republican Marco Rubio and independent Charlie Crist, state Sen. Chris Smith was quoted as saying that the Crist campaign was spreading the rumors. But there was no reaction from Crist’s people. So the Independent asked for one.
Crist spokesman Danny Kanner responded:
We have nothing to do with those discussions. That said, Charlie Crist is the only candidate who can bring common sense Democrats, Republicans, and independents together to defeat the extreme Tea Party agenda of Marco Rubio, and then deliver bipartisan results for working families in the United States Senate.
