Ernesto's impact



LeRoy Collins - The campaign canceled plans to campaign in Miami-Dade and Broward counties this week.

Katherine Harris - The campaign sent an email to supporters encouraging them to prepare.
"My thoughts and prayers are with all Floridians as we confront the first hurricane of the season," Harris said. "Make sure that you have adequate supplies for you and your family and check in with your neighbors, especially the elderly and infirm."

Will McBride - The campaign canceled events Wednesday including a tax forum in the Tampa Bay area and a Republican club meeting in Volusia County. The campaign also had a serious discussion about whether to keep airing its TV ads but decided to keep them up.

Peter Monroe - He was already in Miami for campaign events on Monday and decided to stay through the storm. He said he hopes to help residents in the aftermath. "I'm hanging out in Miami," he said. "I'm going to make myself useful."
