Poll shows Harris defeating Nelson or does it?



Republican U.S. Senate candidate Katherine Harris sent out a press release recently touting a win (54 percent to 45 percent) over Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in a straw poll at the Lakeland Bi-Annual Politics in the Park.

But according to the Lakeland Ledger you had to pay $25 to vote. The Ledger even ran a picture of Harris helping a six-year-old vote.

Check out the newspaper's column here with the headline: Harris Unfairly Trumpets Results of a Straw Poll in the Park
