Rep. Kendrick Meek won a three-way Democratic Senate primary in Florida yesterday. People For the American Way Voters Alliance has endorsed Meek, citing his history of working for voting rights, public education, and reproductive freedom.

Michael B. Keegan, President of People For the American Way, said:

“Congratulations to Rep. Meek for his victory in yesterday’s primary. He is absolutely the right person to represent Florida in the Senate.

“In his eight years in the House of Representatives, Rep. Meek has been a strong advocate for voting rights, public education, and America’s workers, and an uncompromising supporter of a woman’s right to choose. He will serve the people of Florida well in the United States Senate.”
