There’s a newRasmussen poll out on the Florida Senate race that has Sen. Bill Nelson beating Harris 54% to 37%. And as far as favorability goes…
Fifty-five percent (55%) of voters view Nelson favorably-25% view him very favorably. Harris’ numbers are weighted at the other end of the spectrum: 53% have an unfavorable view of her including 39% in the “very unfavorable” category.
Nelson maintains another distinct advantage over Harris: fundraising. The most recent financial disclosure statements show Nelson’s campaign sitting on approximately $12 million as the campaign enters crunch time. Harris’ campaign has just $2.2 million on hand.
Speaking of campaign funds, our Kathy got a wad of cash from her neighborMark Foley back in the day.
Rep. Katherine Harris, R-Longboat Key, who faces Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Orlando, in the Nov. 7 election, received $2,000 from Foley in 2001.
Will she give the money back or donate it to charity? Hell, she still hasn’t decided what she will do withBob Ney’s filthy lucre.
Harris, a Sarasota Republican running against Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson, got $6,000 from U.S. Rep. Bob Ney’s political action committee, American Liberty PAC, when she ran for Congress in 2002 and 2004.
