Harris tries to get a little good press



Two days ago, Republican U.S. Senate nominee Katherine Harris ordered reporters to stop interviewing people that she had talked to at a business expo at the Kissimmee Civic Center.

(Does she really not know she can't do that?)

But on Saturday it was a whole different story.

Harris encouraged some reporters (but not those of us she no longer speaks to) to interview people at the Republican-friendly gun show in downtown Clearwater.

"You should be polling in here,'' she quipped to some reporters.

Not everyone loved her though. One couple replied "absolutely not" when they were asked by a volunteer to wear a Harris for U.S. Senate sticker.

Presumably, Harris would not want reporters talking to them.
