Florida Representative Kendrick Meek declares his candidacy for U.S. Senate and already lands key advisor to Obama’s presidential campaign, Steve Hildebrand.  Ben Smith over at Politico notes that “the move offers instant credibility for Meek, and an experiment in whether the lessons of Obama’s race can be applied in a more ordinary state contest.”

Meek is a liberal-leaning populist with a history of needling the other Bush down in Florida.  Back in January of 2000, Meek staged a sit-in inside Gov. Geb Bush’s office.  According to his wikipedia entry, “The sit-in lasted for 25 hours, with the central issue being a newly-implemented ‘One Florida’ plan to end official race/gender preferences in state government.”  Meek said, “the governor came in and was barking at us as though we were children, saying that if we expect for him to rescind his executive order, then we might as well order some blankets and get comfortable, which we did.”

Looks like the war on Bush part 2 has just begun.
