(CNN) -- Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek said it was Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and not former President Bill Clinton who asked him to end his Senate bid in Florida.

Meek talked Friday about the issue during an interview with CNN's "American Morning."

Meek denied published reports that Clinton had tried to persuade him to drop out of the race because he might steal votes from Crist.
