To paraphrase Dr. Seuss . . . Oh, the things you can do with Kendrick Meek as U.S. Senator! Oh, the things President Obama can do with one more solid Democratic Senate vote!
Let’s begin the New Decade doing everything we can for Congressman Meek to win the U.S. Senate. Let us help him get the petitions to be the first person in the history of Florida to qualify by petition. Kendrick will be top of the ticket on every ballot in the State of Florida. Every Democrat running in every election in Florida will need Kendrick to win too. And for Kendrick Meek to win the Senate big. We can do it.
To jump start the New Decade a number of us, including Alan Ehrlich, David Carr, GRASSROOTS PATRIOTS, and the Kendrick Meek organizers, such as Kate Nowak 718-715-6437,email@example.com and Samantha Shalda 708-638-6836 are planning a neighborhood petition canvass. Please mark your calendar to join us:

The nail-biting, white-knuckle health care debate in the U.S. Senate is over. But close votes are scary. Compromises are made. We are not yet getting everything we need. Because of the nonexistent margin in the U.S. Senate, reconciliation will force the U.S. House of Representatives to go along with just about everything in the Senate plan.
A Democratic margin in future Senate votes is one reason we need Kendrick Meek in the U.S. Senate. The other reason is he’s a great guy!
Also, please donate to Kendrick Meek’s campaign:
Happy New Year! Happy New Decade!
