Collins questions Harris' mailers



U.S. Senate candidate LeRoy Collins called on rival Katherine Harris to correct what he calls misleading information in her campaign mailings.


Collins says Harris wrongly claims as "fact" that Gov. Jeb Bush and Lt. Governor Toni Jennings have pledged to back her campaign and that Republican state party chairwoman Carole Jean Jordan has "officially endorsed her."

"There is pattern of misleading information coming from our opponent, and we call on her to immediately correct it," said Chris Ingram, Collins' campaign manager. "Voters of Florida deserve better than being duped by the candidates who seek to represent them."
