FLORIDA NEEDS TAX RELIEF

TAMPA, FL— Congresswoman Katherine Harris, the Republican candidate for United States Senate launched a targeted effort this morning to inform Florida voters of how Bill Nelson has worked against tax relief for our families and businesses. Standing in front of the Internal Revenue Service in Washington, Katherine Harris reminds voters that she is the only candidate in this race who will fight to reduce taxes and government spending so that people can keep more of their hard-earned money.

“My opponent has voted against tax cuts time and time again, opting to funnel more of our wages to a bloated federal government. When I am Florida’s next U.S. Senator, I will vote to cut taxes and confront wasteful spending through a fair tax system.”

Bill Nelson has a record of preventing income taxes from being lowered, he has voted against marriage penalty tax relief, and he has earned the title “Enemy of the Taxpayer” by the National Taxpayer’s Union. Our opponent has even voted against tax credits for small business owners to purchase health insurance for their employees and against legislation aimed at eliminating the onerous tax on Social Security.

Katherine Harris, the Republican Candidate for the United States Senate, currently serves as the Representative for Florida’s 13th Congressional District. After receiving a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, she continued a distinguished career in public service to her native state that began in the State Senate and as Florida’s last elected Secretary of State. She resides in Longboat Key with her husband Anders Ebbeson and his 24-year-old daughter, Louise along with the constituents of District thirteen.

Because she has absolutely no chance of winning. Should have dropped from the race and given someone else a chance who isnt the laughing stock of politics.

She's a horrible candidate with no chance of winning. I feel bad for the woman, she got the shaft from the Bush family and the RNC. Given the fact bush owes his presidency to her you think a little more gratitude. Fact of the matter is she's too damaged to win anything in this state.

You still have not mentioned anything substantial here! How do you know Bush was not grateful for her doing her job correctly in the position she held? What do you know without just empty/blank accusations? I have only heard media stories, I of course we can trust them. So do some homework, put it on my desk, I'll pass out grades at the end of the week. Right now, you're failing in reference checking along with building any kind of intelligent discourse. So if you don't want to flunk the course,, as they say, "Put-up or shut-up" ! Turkeys are for thanksgiving tables, not empty babel on FreeRepublic!

We'll see.

I wish we could have found a better candidate to run in Florida (but, being from New York, I can hardly talk).

We have to get behind her now. But if she continues to self-destruct, she'll lose a seat we should win and we will hear that it's our fault for not supporting her sooner....

she is the candidate we have.

She has botched up campaigns, but I will vote for her.

She has poorly delivered her message, but her message is correct and I will vote for her.

I will not be silenced by defeatism.

Defeatism did not stop Leonidas and his spartans.

Maximizing turnout is always a victory for our side.

actually no. She is more than up to the task of winning her house seat and state office. If she goes slow and rehabs herself she could even win the governorship.

How exactly did Harris being in the race keep others out?

The only qualifications to run for Senate are that one must be a US citizen at least 30 years of age. My copy of the Constitution left out the part that says others can't run if Katherine Harris is in the race.

Harris had three competitors.

The admiral adocates easing tensions with cuba. A non-starter in Miami.

One other was a typical lawyer politician. yawn.


Nobody screamed hanging chads or deleted e-votes. The primary is done.

The Rovian analysis is to keep away from the 2000 election reminders. She is on her own. In the end, ALL candidates are on their own.

I just hope this is not a Paula Hawkins repeat.

Oh, I know she had competitors. I voted for her in the primary and will do the same in the general. My litmus test in the primary is always, "Who's the most conservative?" My litmus test in the general is always, "Who's the Republican?"

My reply was to a FReeper who was implying that since Harris was in the race, no one else could run. A ridiculous statement.

Who's Paula Hawkins? I'm a relative Florida newbie.

President Bush and Governor Bush Endorse Harris

Friday, September 22, 2006

TAMPA – As proof of growing support for Congresswoman Katherine Harris, she received a warm endorsement from President George W. Bush at two events yesterday, in Tampa and Orlando. President Bush stated that he was “proud” to be at the Tampa event with Congresswoman Katherine Harris, and later in the day, Governor Jeb Bush offered his support once again.

Yesterday at the Orlando event, President Bush stated, “I, too, encourage you to vote for Katherine Harris for the United States Senate.”

Katherine Harris, Republican Candidate for the United States Senate, currently serves as the Representative for Florida’s 13th Congressional District. After receiving a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, she continued a distinguished career in public service to her native state that began in the State Senate and as Florida’s last elected Secretary of State. She resides in Longboat Key with her husband Anders Ebbeson and his 24-year-old daughter, Louise along with the constituents of District thirteen

Hawkins ran against Bob Grahm and lost by a comfortable margin.

Much like Graham, Nelson has his own machine that can function independent of any Democrat conections or financing.

We have to be honest and face facts. Nelson is VERY well seated and has the option of phoning in this race from a vaction spot in the bahamas. It is his to loose.

That said, Harris has 30 days to do SOMETHING DRAMATIC.

Absent a hail marry pass, I don't see how she can shift votes.

Pehaps as a member of the MAJORITY she can say she can do more for social security than Nelson as a member of the minority out of power party.

she may be doing the right thing but I only see news about her here on FR.

There is no MSM coverage of her.

only nelson interviews about the war.

It is as if she does not exist.

She REALLY needs to put her voice out there and go for the jugular.

So tell me why did Nelson hastily agree to debate her then. Or why the minute she won the primary, Nelson attended a fundraiser at some lib's residence.

I think Nelson is concerned because he knows that all of the FL media hit pieces on Harris has energized conservatives, plus the fact that top Republicans are now going to bat for her.

Yawn. Show me a single GOP candidate who has not gotten up and sworn on a stack of Bibles that once they are in Washington they will take a meat cleaver to government spending. Now show me what Harris has done in her two terms in Congress to do just that. Some example where she turned down pork for her district would help.

Do you remember what President Bush and Governer Bush were doing when they 'warmly endorsed' Harris? They were at fund raisers, a $2 million fund raiser, if memory serves, for the candidate for governor and a fund raiser for some Orlando congressional candidate. They didn't raise dollar one for her that day. In the mean time Harris is scrambling for money. So as soon as the President and the Governor throw a multi-million dollar fund raiser for her then I'll believe that they are behind her candidacy.

I think he accepted fast to show he has no fear of her and the clip any "he will not debate me" commercials.

By bending like the willow he takes away any media exposure opportunities.

addendum: Look at it from Nelson's advantage. What does he have to gain by debating her. By agreeing quickly he eliminates any build up.

He eliminates any "will there be debates" anticipation.

This keeps the PR down, and since few will watch the debates then few will be swayed by them.

Now it just comes to her performance.

She needs face time in front of the cameras. She can use the recent Massachusets decision legalizing homosexual marriage in RI (yes I know it is a bit confusing but it just happened b/c two RI homosexuals went to Mass and a judge said they could marry in Mass.) To say she supports the Federal Marriage Amendment. She could blast the civil unions BS.

She has to have a very PUBLIC take no prisoners, no redeployment surrender attitude.
