(CNN) - At a press conference Thursday night Democratic Senate nominee Rep. Kendrick Meek called press reports that he was asked to drop out of the race “inaccurate at best.”
“Any rumor or any statement that I decided to get out of his race is inaccurate at best,” Meek said.
Meek said neither former President Clinton nor the Democratic National Committee called him to say he should get out of the race.
He also addressed Gov. Crist’s comments earlier in the night that Meek was asked to step aside.
“He’s trying to push Democratic votes in his direction,” Meek said. “He wants to climb on my back to get those votes.”
Meek ended the conference saying, “If there was a conversation between Bill Clinton and I, we’re the only two people that can say how that conversation went.”
