FORT MYERS, Fla. - As the election inches closer, candidates are making sure they haven't left any ground uncovered. Many have made stops in Southwest Florida in recent weeks.
Tuesday, Democratic Senate-hopeful Kendrick Meek was in town for two appearances in Lee County.
Kendrick Meek is trailing in the polls, but he's not letting that slow him down as the election nears.
Meek is set to talk to a group of retired Southwest Florida United Auto workers at Shriner's Temple. His second stop in Fort Myers will be Tuesday afternoon at the campaign for accountability phone bank. He'll be calling local residents, reminding them to cast their ballots when the polls open for early voting on October 18th.
Also in attendance was Lee County supervisor of elections Sharon Harrington - explaining just how big of an election this is.
Meek has some big names backing his candidacy. He joined President Obama for a campaign stop in Miami Monday. Next week, he'll team up with Former President Clinton for rallies in Saint Petersburg and Orlando.
