In it, but not of it. TPM DC

'Fire-Breathing Liberal' Dem Wexler Endorses Crist In FL-SEN


There is, of course, another key issue that hangs over this race -- electability against Republican Marco Rubio, and the splitting of the Democratic vote. Wexler's support came at the same time as a new Mason-Dixon poll showed Crist bleeding Democratic support to the actual Dem nominee, Rep. Kendrick Meek, thus aiding Rubio on a split anti-Republican vote. The TPM Poll Average gives Rubio 40.0%, Crist 29.5%, and Meek 22.1%.

As such, support from Wexler and other big-name Dems could possibly help Crist marginalize Meek and become the de facto actual Dem nominee. Will it work in time for election day?
