Is Harris airing a TV ad?



Republican U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris supposedly started airing TV ads yesterday. It would the first for her in the general election against Democrat Bill Nelson.

But unlike other candidates, Harris issued no press release or email to supporters announcing the ads.

With less than $1-million in the bank as of the end of September, it couldn't have been much of an ad buy unless she suddenly received a slew of donations or put in more of her own money.

Harris and her staff stopped talking to the Buzz awhile ago so we won't be able to get an answer for you from them. We will, however, tell you if we hear any news of an ad from anywhere else.

In the meantime, have any of you seen it?

UPDATE: There is an ad. It's running statewide through Election Day. It's the same one she aired during the primary.
