TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek said he's ready for the first three-way debate of the general election season.
Most polls show Meek in third place, but closing the gap between himself and independent candidate Governor Crist.
Former House Speaker Marco Rubio leads with some polls showing him with 40 percent of the vote. Still, Meek is confident he will win and said the governor will end up in last place.
"The governor is like, he's wearing a kerosene suit running through a three alarm fire. He's not going to come in first. He's going to attract republican conservative dollars into the state because that's the last thing they would like to see on the national level."
The first debate to feature all three candidates will be hosted by Spanish language TV station Univision Friday September 17th.
