It appears that the GOP is not all to pleased with Katherine Harris running for the Senate in FL.
AP News reports:
Republican leaders have been looking around for someone other than Rep. Katherine Harris to run for the Senate, fearing too many Democrats and moderates still despise her over her role in the 2000 presidential recount. But the GOP may be stuck with her.
Harris campaign manager Jim Dornan seems to feel that “Moderates at the end of the day will see that what Katherine Harris did in 2000 is exactly what the law called for.”
Well, we ceratinly hope you’re right there Jim… We’d love the moderates to wake up to the reality of Harris’s role in the 2000 election… We’d love to the see Bill Nelson trounce her but good!
The trouble with Katherine Harris is that “Republicans have privately said her negatives among independent and Democratic voters are so high that she will not be able to defeat Nelson.”
