I don’t know why I find this woman so fascinating. She’s a living train wreck and I just can’t stop watching. In her latest crazy move, she’s once again claiming the support of prominent politicians that don’t support her. Last week, Jeb Bush did a “unity tour” with Republican office seekers in Florida and Harris was not invited. Responding to that embarrassment, she announced:
But the Longboat Key Republican, who in some polls trails Nelson by more than 25 points, said Friday she wasn’t concerned because a similar trip helping her candidacy was in the works.
“We have our own Unity Tour,” Harris said. “We will be traveling with the governor.”
To which the Bush folks responed, “Huh? What?”
U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris said Friday that Gov. Jeb Bush will campaign with her in the next two months, but the state GOP said no such commitment exists…
But Friday, it was unclear what Harris was talking about. The Governor’s Office referred questions about Harris to the state party. And party spokesman Jeff Sadosky said the governor had not agreed to stump with Harris…
If Bush did join Harris, it would be a dramatic turnabout. The governor has criticized her campaign and said he did not think she could beat Nelson…
Republican political consultant Todd Harris — no relation to the candidate — said he doesn’t expect Bush to go beyond some helpful words. The Harris-Nelson race is too lopsided, he said, and resources are better spent on more competitive races.
“I’d be very surprised if any senior official from the party did much to help her,” said Todd Harris, who worked on Bush’s 2002 re-election campaign.
Bear in mind, Harris is only a few weeks removed from having put a list of people in Congress who endorse her candidacy on her campaign website, only to have those people publicly say that they did not endorse her. I swear, this is like watching someone on acid run for office. Harris and reality don’t seem to be well acquainted.
