Star Jones hits the phones for Jeff Greene

(CNN ) - While former President Bill Clinton is in Florida campaigning for Rep.Kendrick Meek, Meek's opponent in the state's Democratic Senate primary, billionaire real estate investor Jeff Greene, is getting help from another big name.

Lawyer and television personality Star Jones–formerly a host on the daytime talk show, "The View"–recorded a robocall for Greene that's going out to Florida households starting Monday.

"My friend Jeff Greene is unbeholden to any special interest group, corporate entity or government lobbyist," Jones says in the call. "And as an attorney that means something to me."

Listen to the call after the jump:

"You can count on him to do the right thing simply because it's the right thing," she adds, "And the talk show host in me thinks, 'Now isn't that refreshing.'"

A Quinnipiac University poll conducted July 22-27 had Greene ahead of Meek by 10 percent among likely Democratic primary voters.

Florida's primary election will be held on August 24.
