Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Deaf and Dumb

The latest Katherine Harris news.

ORLANDO -- Katherine Harris' attempt to boost her campaign with a series of high-profile endorsements wilted Thursday when none of the officials appeared at her campaign rally and one of them said Harris wrongly included him on her list of supporters.

State Sen. Daniel Webster, R-Winter Garden, said he has not endorsed Harris and instead is supporting one of her challengers, Orlando attorney Will McBride.

Harris, McBride, retired Adm. LeRoy Collins and developer Peter Monroe are battling for the right to take on Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in the general election.

Webster, a former Florida House speaker and now a state senator, said he has been with McBride since May, when the candidate jumped into the race.

"I've always backed Will," Webster said. "He'll make a great United States senator."

Webster said he had no idea why Harris listed him as one of her supporters. He said he never endorsed her.


He wasn't the only no-show for Harris' "Soaring for the Senate" rally.

None of the nine officials listed on her event flier appeared, leaving Harris on her own to address a group of about 40 supporters, reporters and campaign-staff members.

The most prominent official on hand was former state Rep. Allen Trovillion, who left office four years ago.

Harris spoke in an airplane hangar that seemed to highlight the modest size of the crowd. She said a last-minute location change -- required because a tree fell on the hangar where the event was supposed to be held -- kept crowd numbers down.

Airport officials, however, said no hangar had been damaged by a tree and that the rally was in the hangar that had been originally booked.
Why did Harris feel the need to lie about the hanger. She has a history of these things, which makes her credibility about zero. That's why she is so far behind in the polls.

The lack of people at this event should be sending Harris a message. That it is time to drop her futile campaign and let someone else have a crack at Senator Bill Nelson in November. The title of my post sums up Katherine Harris at the moment. Anyone disagree?
