News-99 has obtained exclusive footage of a private meeting between Ms. Harris and her doctors in which the 49-year-old Harris is told the horrifying results of a recent series of blood tests. "You have cooties," the video shows the doctors saying.

    Attorney General Charlie Crist's formidable lead over Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher in the Republican primary for governor appears secure, according to a poll released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University, but with less than a week to go before Tuesday's election, the race between the leading Democrats is still up for grabs. Crist is ahead of Gallagher 57 to 32 percent, according to the Connecticut-based public opinion research group. But the poll says the contest between U.S. Rep. Jim Davis and state Sen. Rod Smith is much tighter, with Davis leading 43-32 percent, while a substantial 24 percent of Democrats surveyed...
