Rep. Kendrick B. Meek Headshot

The Real Democrat (FL-Sen)

Posted: Updated:

If you haven't seen it yet, the campaign released a new web video this morning, asking the question, "How do you find the real Democrat in the Florida U.S. Senate race"? Take a look and tell me what you think. Video and transcript below...

Narrator: How do you find the real Democrat in the Florida U.S. Senate race?

Narrator: Uh, not Marco Rubio, no.

Narrator: Jeff Greene says he's a Democrat, but he was a Republican, and was not a Democrat until 2008.

Chorus: He's not a real Democrat.

Narrator: He's just confused.

Narrator: Jeff thinks he can use the bazillion dollars he made when middle class families lost their homes to buy the Florida Senate seat. [Chorus: Boos]

Chorus: That's Just Charlie Crist

Narrator: Even Charlie Crist said: "I'm a Jeb Bush Republican," "It's hard to be more conservative than I am on the issues."

Chorus: Charlie Crist is no Democrat

Narrator: So, which candidate in the race is pro-choice, has always voted against offshore drilling, and stood up for the middle class?

Chorus: That's Kendrick Meek
