Florida GOP flees in panic, too!
GOP has a party without Harris
A "Unity Tour" of statewide candidates who won primaries Tuesday doesn't include the one who captured the U.S. Senate nomination.
HIALEAH - Everyone tried to make nice afterward, but somehow Katherine Harris didn't get invited to the party.
Just two days after her win in the U.S. Senate primary, the congresswoman was noticeably missing as the Florida Republican Party took a victory lap around the state Thursday with Gov. Jeb Bush, its four other statewide candidates and one former opponent.
Only once Thursday, in Jacksonville, did Bush or any other Republican mention the Harris campaign from the dais. It was also the only event where Harris' supporters were present holding signs.
Just two days ago, when the party sent out congratulatory news releases on Crist's and Lee's primary victories, it didn't note the Harris win, increasing speculation that the party's ambivalence over Harris' candidacy in the primary was spilling over into the general election.
