Harris may yet get a GOP rival
Darn it -

A nephew of the Pittsburgh Steelers owner says he's been urged to run amid word of trouble in Rep. Katherine Harris' bid.

TALLAHASSEE - A former Army officer who taught law at West Point said Thursday he has been urged by Republican insiders to challenge Rep. Katherine Harris for the party's nomination for the Senate.

Tom Rooney, a nephew of Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney, said he will decide within two weeks. "Obviously I can't wait too long," said Rooney, 35, who lives in Jupiter

Rooney wouldn't identify those who have tried to persuade him to make the run, but he didn't deny conversations with senatorial committee strategists.
