A voicemail from Gov. Charlie Crist to Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek from earlier this week emerged on Saturday, suggesting Crist asked Meek to withdraw from the three-way race.
The existence of the voicemail comes a day after questions arose about whether former President Bill Clinton pressured Meek to give up his bid and back Crist.
Meek says Clinton discussed the topic but didn’t press him to exit the race. Instead, Meek has said it was Crist who asked him to withdraw.
