Harris wins straw poll
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris defeated Democratic rival Bill Nelson in a straw poll at the Daytona Beach Chamber of Commerce 10th Hob Nob.
In a news release, Harris' campaign attributes the win to building momentum and grassroots support through the state on her "pro-growth, pro-family message."
“I appreciate the strong support of a majority of voters who are disillusioned with Bill Nelson’s lack of leadership and his record of voting against Florida’s best interests,'' she said. "I will fight for Florida in the United States Senate.”
