At a Republican dinner in Putnam County last weekend, Rep. Katherine Harris said some very unlikely people were supporting her campaign for U.S. Senate.
Harris said several House Democrats from Florida want her to defeat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson this fall...But all seven House Democrats from Florida told the Orlando Sentinel they never expressed any support for Harris.

of her, described a nonexistent plot to blow up a power grid in Indiana and
urged Florida scientists to treat citrus canker with a solution that turned out
to be water.
More recently she has endured an exodus of staff members and has been linked to a defense contractor who pleaded guilty to bribing a former California congressman.
