THE FAITHFUL CONTINUE TO STAND BEHIND HARRIS
The state Republican leadership has warned her not to expect any support from them during this campaign. Her campaign for the U.S. Senate has been a revolving door of staffers, some of who have gone public with stories of her wide temperment and micromanagement of minor details. She's been questioned regarding her relationship with an lobbyist who has pleaded guilty to bribing a California congressman.
Yet Congresswoman Katherine Harris (R - Longboat Key) still has plenty of followers among rank and file Florida Republicans as she attempts to challenge Democratic incumbant Bill Nelson in the U.S. Senate this year. She still commands a large lead over her primary challengers, thanks to a loyal following of supporters.
Anita Kumar of the St. Petersburg Times looks at Ms. Harris' campaign and her loyal following in this story which appears in several Florida newspapers today.
