Why Katherine Harris Is Not A Serious Candidate

Congresswoman Katherine Harris: Harris says Nelson (ignoring Martinez) has "come up with a worse solution that keeps Congress in charge."
Multiple newspapers have already acknowledged that the Nelson-Martinez plan, which would make a permanent ban, best protects Florida's coast. It's a shame Harris cares more about politics than she cares about doing something for Florida.
Jeb Bush lost the first time he ran for Governor. A big reason was his opponent was Lawton Chiles. The second major reason was his pro-offshore drilling platform. Jeb didn't win many voters from the left or middle because of that. Jeb changed his tuned when he ran against Buddy MacKay.
Harris has always struck me as politically tone deaf. Floridian voters don't want offshore drilling. Republicans holding state won't touch this. The woman is not even smart enough to lie about her support for oil expansion in the Gulf. She just handed Nelson a hot button issue to use against her.
