Harris Stays in Florida Senate Race

Surprisingly and against the stern recommendation of the gang at RedState, Congresswoman Katherine Harris announced late Wednesday that she was staying in the race for the U.S. Senate against Democrat incumbent Ben Nelson. The latest independent polling has Harris trailing by more than 20 points.

I agree with RedState. Harris is making a big mistake - both personally and for the GOP - by staying in this race. It was apparent to this pundit from Harris' early appearances on Hannity and O'Reilly that she was not going to come close to winning against a vulnerable Nelson. This has little to do with the issues and more to do with the candidate. Harris has seemed awkward at best this election cycle, and questions regarding her campaign haven't helped things. Of course, the White House assisted the Florida GOP early on to clear the field of any other Republican challengers to Harris, so I guess there is plenty of blame to go around for this colossal blunder.

Actually, the White House tried to get Harris out of the race early on because they didn't think she was viable against Nelson.

That was the front cover, but the backstory didn't match.
