CU Favorite Meek Loses Florida Senate Race
Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.), who received $5,000 from both CUNA's and NAFCU's PACs in his fight for an open Senate seat, was projected to finish third by the Associated Press.
Meek was behind the winner, Republican former state House Speaker Marco Rubio, and Gov. Charlie Crist, who ran as an independent.
Meek, a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, was seeking to be the first African American senator from the South since Reconstruction.
