State GOP Writes Off Katherine Harris
Despite having promised not to write about Katherine Harris again, recent revelations have put a new twist on the saga.
A May 7th letter from Florida GOP Chairwoman Carole Jordan to Harris said, "Katherine, though it causes us much anguish, we have determined that your campaign faces irreparable damage. We feel that we have no other choice but to revoke our support."
Harris' spin was that Jordan was pressured by Republican "elites" to write the letter. In a July 31st statement, Harris called the letter "old news" and said that Jordan had never expressed concerns about her campaign. However, that same day, Jordan said, "our concerns about the race and the nominee's ability to knock off Bill Nelson still exist."
