Statement by U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek Regarding Dan Gelber’s Announcement to Step Back from the U.S. Senate Race

U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek, D-Miami, released the following statement regarding Dan Gelber’s announcement at tonight’s Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Miami Beach to step back from the U.S. Senate race:

“Dan Gelber is the model public servant guided by a lifelong pursuit of truth. I’d wish Dan luck in any endeavor that he pursues, but he doesn’t need luck. Dan’s intellect, dedication to justice and sense of fairness will serve him and our state well no matter his pursuit. He is a friend who puts party first and his message to Florida Democrats that we must unify around a slate of candidates is a powerful statement that I wholeheartedly embrace. Dan is a natural leader who will continue to serve our state with distinction in any capacity he chooses and our party is better off because of him.“
