Collins challenges Harris



U.S. Senate candidate LeRoy Collins on Saturday again called for rival Katherine Harris to withdraw from the Republican primary, calling her campaign a "circus sideshow."

Barring a withdrawal, Collins called on Harris to acknowledge that she received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice in the MZM matter and to explain if she has notified the House Speaker - as required by House rule - of that subpoena.

"It appears my opponent Katherine Harris cannot get herself untangled from the web of questionable behavior, misstatements, and campaign gaffes she has spun,'' Collins said. "Candidates for the United States Senate must be above reproach.  It is unfortunate that with her in this race, this campaign has become a circus sideshow."
