GOP now openly considers Katherine Harris a pariah.


This article is from Harris' home-town newspaper. It doesn't look good for Cruella.

Until recently is was just rumored that the rethugs wanted someone else to run for the Florida Senate. Now they openly express fears Harris will adversely impact other GOP races. Jeb Bush gave tacit endorsement yesterday to someone who hasn't even announced candidacy yet.....

"I know there are a lot of people encouraging him to run. He's just a great leader and an excellent person ... He would be a great United States senator, but that's up to him," Bush said.

Sabato said one of the races that could be affected is the re-election bid of Rep. Clay Shaw, a Fort Lauderdale Republican who is facing a stiff challenge from Democrat Ron Klein in District 22. If Harris dampens the Republican vote in that Palm Beach County district, it could be the difference in unseating Shaw, Sabato said.

Dem Nelson leads Harris more than 2 to 1 in the latest polls.

The polls show the difficulty Harris faces. A Strategic Vision poll released Wednesday shows Harris would lose big to Nelson. Nelson would get 56 percent, and Harris 24 percent, according to the Republican polling firm. The Georgia-based firm conducted its poll of 1,200 voters last weekend. It has a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.

Come on darlin', you can do it. Just pump some more of Daddy's money into that campaign. Maybe make another infomercial with Hannity. Sweet talk a few cub reporters here and there.

14. Hey, she was just following orders from the Guv
Remember, the same one who had "recused" himself? Not a capital offense, but one that carries a political penalty down the road. Rest assured, she's already DOA.

8. I hope she hangs on through the summer
So, it's too late for a newcomer to mount a serious challenge to Nelson. If she dropped out now, a newcomer might seem like a breath of fresh air and be able to mount a serious challenge.

9. Filing Deadline is May 12th
If another Repuke is going to run, it's getting pretty close to "now or never" for this race.

20. The rumor down here is that Tommy Franks has been asked by
several r-wing groups to run.. I've heard it several times over the last few months now.. I hope he doesn't run because there is a lot of retired military down here, and he would do a lot better than Cruella..

21. And he's an old friend of the Boosh family.



I don't know if that would be a plus or a minus actually.

13. Donate to the Harris campaign NOW!
Edited on Thu Apr-27-06 11:21 AM by Zambero
This woman is too indispensible to be forced out of the race at this point. We need to do everything possible to keep radioacitive unelectable candidates at the top of State tickets. A Harris candidacy in the fall elections could equate to a 2 or 3 seat pickup for Dems in the Florida delegation. We really need more like her in other States. Why waste money contributing to Democratic shoo-ins when these discredited pariahs are worth their weight in gold? Keep them alive, but just barely. Give til it HURTS!

15. That woman should be seriously scared, considering what she knows...
...and who she could bring down by talking about it. Pariah, indeed. I wouldn't want to be within a quarter mile of her, right now.

16. this is great news!
hopefully she will stay in the race, since nelson will gut her in the election.

secondly, let's hope she finally turns on her party (who have abandoned her) and spills the beans on selection 2000 and any other dirt she has on people like jebby.

it would be so funny to see sean hannity backpedaling if harris comes out with some confessions about the chicanery in selection 2000. the best would be if she came out with the dirt while appearing on hannity's show on fox.

19. Perhaps Harris believes she can steal this one too...She absolutely did it
Edited on Thu Apr-27-06 11:38 AM by LaPera
before...knock a couple hundred thousand blacks from the polls, change the votes via republican owned electronic voting machines, cheat any way possible...

But the race has to be a lot fucking closer than it is now to effectively be able to pull it off...

Every republican running this November, in close races will be cheating with electronic voting machines...it makes good sense, if they steal it then they are in...nothing will happen to them even if they are caught!!!!

So it pays to steal the seat, they'd be stupid NOT to...

22. If she wants someone to show her some love, turn on the repukes and tell
all about the 2000 election. It would save her a lot of money, save her the embarrassment of losing and give her some new found friends. Right now she is beating a dead horse. The repukes used her and now don't want her.
