From the staff of the Tampa Bay Times

Former Harris staffer disputes claims



If you didn't see the article earlier, Katherine Harris told the St. Petersburg Times that her staff told her not to visit newspaper editorial boards across the state. (Story is here if you missed it)

But on Tuesday, the day the article ran, Chris Ingram (who recently left Harris' campaign and now works for rival LeRoy Collins) said it was not the staff's fault.

Ingram said he kept asking her if she would do the newspaper interviews after requests started to pile up and papers  began to call repeatedly to ask if she was coming. Harris wouldn't make a decision.

"We raised the question," he said. "We left it to her."
