Dear ______,

You may have heard a ridiculous - and completely false - rumor that I'm backing Charlie Crist.

No way, no how.

I am supporting just one candidate in the Florida Senate race: Kendrick Meek.

The announcement yesterday that Crist is abandoning the Republican Party to run as an independent is a game-changer. Crist and Marco Rubio will now fight over the same pool of Republican voters, giving us a real path to victory.

Kendrick needs our help so he can seize this opportunity right now. While we know the corporate cash will continue to flow to both Rubio and Crist, the resources Kendrick needs to get his message out can only come from the grassroots.

We have to help put Kendrick over the top.

Click here to rush $5 or more to Kendrick before the midnight Sunday deadline. Charlie Crist's game-changing announcement is a tremendous opportunity. Let's seize it.

I'm supporting Kendrick Meek because, while the Republicans have been melting down, he's been a hands-on leader for the people of Florida. He knows what needs to be done.


That's why he's working tirelessly to create good-paying jobs and turn Florida's economy around. He's fighting for to hold Wall Street accountable, so the economy is never again brought to its knees by stock market gamblers.

I know Kendrick will keep on fighting for Florida's working families because that's what he's been doing his whole life. He's not some ideological extremist and he's not governed by raw political ambition.

Kendrick tells me the best way we can help his campaign right now is to help him meet this fundraising goal before midnight on Sunday. There are just six months left to win this race.

Click here to rush $5 or more to Kendrick before the midnight Sunday deadline. Charlie Crist's game-changing announcement is a tremendous opportunity. Let's seize it.


I've always said that the power to win elections and lead this country in the right direction rests in your hands. That's still true today.

Kendrick can't win this race by himself. It will take all of us doing our part over the next six months.

Don't wait another minute. Get involved today.

Sincerely,

Howard Dean
