Al Gore to Florida to campaign for Meek

With polls showing him running third in Florida's three-way Senate contest, Rep. Kendrick Meek (D) is bringing in another big-name Democrat for help.

Al Gore will campaign with Meek on Sept. 30 in Tampa, Meek's campaign announced Wednesday. 

The congressman said he was "honored" to receive help from the former vice president.

"Together, we'll show Floridians that there is just one candidate who will stand up for Florida's environment and middle-class families in this state," he said in a statement.

Meek has already gotten help from former President Clinton and President Obama. Democrats want to sure up his base of support to prevent Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (I) from eating into it.

In a recent Fox News poll, Crist drew 27 percent of likely voters, Republican Marco Rubio got 43 percent support and Meek came in third with 21 percent.
