The Florida chapter of the International Association of Fire Fighters endorsed Kendrick Meek in the Democratic primary today outside of a Jacksonville fire house.
"We salute Florida's firefighters, brave men and women who run into harm's way, not away from it. Florida's firefighters and their families know firsthand how this recession hits home in Florida. They are being asked to do more with less and are working in our neighborhoods where communities are being challenged and jobs are lacking. To stand beside some of Jacksonville's finest citizens is an honor, and my work to bring home more resources to our state will benefit their work. I am honored to receive their endorsement today," said Kendrick Meek, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.
A former captain with the Florida Highway Patrol and First Responder, Kendrick Meek was endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police last week in Orlando.
