Kendrick Meek Death Watch: Obama Insiders Helping Crist
If Democrats are really behind Kendrick Meek's Senate campaign why then is the Wall Street Journal reporting Charlie Crist has twice talked to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Crist is not in the Senate or a Democrat. What possible reason could there be other than Reid is courting Crist to caucus with the Democrats.
Other fun facts: Alfredo Balsera advised Barack Obama on Latino outreach and national finance during the 2008 presidential campaign. The consulting firm Squier Knapp Dunn Communications is working on Crist's campaign. A list of SKDC's clients reads like a whose who Democratic politics. Former Obama White House White House Communications Director Anita Dunn is one of the partners. Dunn's husband Robert Bauer serves in the White House Council.
Crist has people that helped Obama get elected working with him. Obama supports Meek so much he has not come down to campaign for him. Reid would not be talking to Crist without White House approval. The Obama people are letting their talent work on the Crist campaign to maintain a Seante majority. If Obama and Reid really thought Meek could win Crist would be isolated from the Democratic establishment. On the bright side: Meek has Kenneth Quinnell on his campaign staff to counter Squier Knapp Dunn Communications and Balsera.
