House Democrats Root for Harris?



Excerpts from the Palatka Daily News: "I’ve had Democrats in the House of Representatives come to me and say ‘You know, we’d really like to take the majority in the U.S. Senate’ — these are Florida Democrats in the U.S. Congress — ‘but you’ll do so much more for us if you’re there. We hope you win,’” Harris told a crowd gathered at the Putnam County Shrine Club....I had one of the most liberal house members from Florida say to me, ‘I’ve got a great slogan for you for Nelson.’ I said ‘What is it?’ He said, ’All about nothing for far too long.’” Harris said she replied she did not think she could use the slogan.

“I said ‘Well, it’s kind of mean. I don’t think I could really use it, but can I quote you?’ And he’s like ‘No, no, no.’”
