Katherine's first endorsement?



Republican U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris proudly displays on her campaign Website what we think is her first endorsement in the general election.

The Polk County Democrat , published twice weekly, supports Harris - the hometown candidate - over Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson.

"Like many Polk Countians, we have known her since childhood, and have watched with pride as she worked her way up the political system,'' according to the editorial. "That is a perspective that few others have."

So far, Nelson has swept the newspaper editorial boards, including the St. Petersburg Times, the Tampa Tribune and the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, circulating in the area that Harris represents in Congress.
