HARRIS WINS REPUBLICAN NOMINATION
POISED TO DEFEAT BILL NELSON IN NOVEMBER
TAMPA, FLCongresswoman Katherine Harris received the Republican nomination for United States Senate this evening, and celebrated her landslide victory at campaign headquarters with nearly a hundred grassroots supporters in attendance. Harris received the nomination by winning nearly every one of Floridas 67 counties, demonstrating voters confidence in her leadership and ability to unseat Bill Nelson in November.
Congresswoman Harris states, I am thankful for the widespread support demonstrated by tonights strong victory. Im thankful for the personal sacrifices made by my family, staff and many dear friends who all united on my behalf because Florida deserves better than Bill Nelson. When elected to the Senate in November, I will finish the fight I started in the House and ensure that Florida remains a place where hard-working families can keep more of their hard-earned money while living in safe and affordable communities.
While the Harris campaign is very pleased with tonights election results, all of our energies will continue to be focused upon unseating the do-nothing liberal incumbent, Bill Nelson. Harris opponent has missed countless opportunities to provide the leadership Florida deserves in the United States Senate while she has a clear record of demonstrating leadership and delivering results for all Floridians.
While serving in the State Senate, as Secretary of State, and in the United States Congress, Katherine Harris has fulfilled her promises and fought for Floridas best interests. Throughout her tenure in public office, Harris has championed legislation to bolster Floridas economic development, cut taxes, reduce government spending and support traditional values. Katherine Harris will continue to do what is right for the people of Florida and work to advance their values as the next Republican U.S. Senator from the great state of Florida.

Looks like early demonrat reports of her ignominious defeat were greatly exaggerated.
Or could have been that she rigged the election? Anyone check those diebold machines????
You'd get better odds at Harrah's on the Devil Rays winning the World Series.
Oh, MUST we descend to the Dems "when dreams become facts" level?
I dont know whether to laugh or cry.
She should have stayed on as a congressman.
For me, the bigger question is why no other "big name" republicans stepped forward to put the seat into play.
New Harris thread........PING
This thread is embarassing.
Yes, she is beautiful ! !
Why do you say that?
I am already here !
How do you account for the polls being so far removed from reality? Quinnipiac polled Harris at 38% for the primary just the other day, and she won with 50% of the vote. Please help me understand how this happens.
Oh--and here are some photos from Harris Campaign HQ tonight. Kathrine was her usual gracious self. She was a real trooper campaigning all day in the searing heat, waving signs to passersby at traffic intersections. The responses were overwhelmingly positive. I know, because I was there.
Then don't come back, who invited you anyway - - !
A Dream can become Reality, even against great odds . .
Yes, she is beautiful ! !
I know, I know, but people have to say something nice...
