Dwyane Wade trying to make last-minute push for Meek

— Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat spent Thursday trying to give Democratic Senate candidate Kendrick Meek's campaign a late assist.

Wade went to an early voting center with Meek, who has also spent part of his week campaigning with former President Bill Clinton.

The Heat guard, who has taken more of an interest in politics in recent years, also sent an e-mail to Meek supporters this week saying that the candidare "shares my values — giving kids a chance for a better future and helping the people who need it the most."

Wade was with President Barack Obama at a fundraiser earlier this month for U.S. Rep. Ron Klein's re-election campaign.

Meek is trailing Republican Marco Rubio and Gov. Charlie Crist, an independent, by wide margins in most polls.
