Katherine's not alone



Rep. Katherine Harris never mentions her Republican opponents in her uphill battle to become Florida's next senator. Instead, she talks about incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson in every campaign stop, in every speech, in every question-and-answer session as if she already were the Republican nominee in the race.

Many are surprised to learn that she is not. Harris faces three candidates in the September primary. The trio's late arrival into the race, combined with their lack of money and name recognition, make her the one to beat -- and the one who is unlikely to be beaten. Story here.
