Kendrick Meek: The black man who beat a billionaire

Have you ever beat a billionaire in anything…me neither. But, today Rep. Kendrick Meek did in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate when he defeated Jeff Greene.

Unfortunately Meek is going to lose because either Democrats don't plan to vote for him because they don't think he can win or because he is black.

Either way he only scores 16% while Crist and Rubio are trading places with numbers in the low 30's.

The only way I see him winning is to convince the Democrats who are voting for Crist to concentrate on the fact that no one knows if Crist is going to caucus with the Republicans or Democrats.
