Harris gets Manatee Sheriff endosement



U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris received the endorsement of Manatee County Sheriff Charlie Wells today.

"I am honored to receive the support of Sheriff Charlie Wells, a man who has lived a life of integrity and personal sacrifice, and for decades has been one of my heroes,'' she said in a statement. ""Wells’ endorsement, and the tremendous grassroots support I receive all throughout the state, sends a clear message that the people of Florida are fed up with Bill Nelson’s dismal lack of accomplishments for Florida."

Wells was first elected in 1984. Before that he served as a Florida Highway Patrol trooper, Bradenton Police Chief and as a State Attorney’s investigator.
