Harris Stuck in the Stands at Bush Event



Katherine Harris may be the only statewide Republican candidate to trek all the way to Pensacola Monday to see President George W. Bush. But that didn't get her much.

As she sat in the stands with her husband, Bush mentioned her from the stage and encouraged the crowd of 10,000 to also vote for the four other missing statewide candidates: Charlie Crist, Bill McCollum, Tom Lee and Charlie Bronson.

Who did make the stage with the President: A slew of local state lawmakers, Gov. Jeb Bush, U.S. Senator Mel Martinez, First Lady Laura Bush, RPOF Chairwoman Carol Jean Jordan, and U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller.
