Going into the final days of the election Democrat Kendrick Meek needs something huge to propel his senate campaign to victory. Getting Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade to send out a fundraising letter on his behalf may not be enough, but it certainly can't hurt (assuming Orlando Magic fans don't take too much offense). Read the entire email from Wade that Meek's campaign just sent out below.

Kendrick Meek shares my values - giving kids a chance for a better future and helping the people who need it the most. That's why I told Kendrick I'd help his campaign however I could.

And with just 6 days left, I knew I could make a difference in his final drive to victory. Kendrick tells me he needs 37 more online donors before midnight tonight, so I'm counting on you to help me put him over the top.

Over these final days, it's more important than ever that we reach out to everyone committed to our shared values. If we can get those people to the polls, I know Kendrick can win.

Kendrick has always fought to give our kids better schools and access to the health care they need. In my foundation, I've been proud to work on the same kinds of issues. Reaching a kid who needs guidance is even more rewarding than finishing a fast break.

Kendrick is also leading the way on helping Haiti recover from the earthquake. Right after that disaster, I worked with Alonzo Mourning to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for survivors, so I know the importance of having strong partners in government to make sure the aid gets to people who need it most.

It's clear to me that Kendrick understands the issues I care about, and I want to help put him in the Senate.

To get there, he needs to pound the pavement and recruit as many voters as possible before Election Day.

Seriously - we can make a difference on Election Day when we all work together. Right now, the best way to help is to make a contribution to Kendrick's campaign. Don't wait another minute.

Kendrick is a special kind of candidate. I'm proud to support his campaign, and I hope you are too.

Sincerely,

Dwyane Wade

Too bad for Meek he couldn't get the entire big three to sign the email. Bosh and LeBron, we're guessing, probably haven't registered to vote in Florida just yet. Besides, LeBron, who left his long time home in the name of winning, might be more of a Charlie Crist type of guy.
