Republican Senate Endorsements

24

July

Republican U.S. Senate candidate LeRoy Collins Jr. picked up a couple prominent Republican endorsements today - from former comptroller Bob Milligan and former secretary of state and attorney general Jim Smith.

Elsewhere in the not-Katherine Harris primary field, Peter Monroe is touting endorsements from former GOP U.S. Sens. Rudy Boschwitz of Minnesota and Larry Pressler of South Dakota. And Will McBride is talking up a straw poll by GOP activists in Seminole County that showed him nearly tied with Harris. The results: Harris 78, McBride 76, Collins 12 and Monroe 1. Said McBride: “That we have run virtually even with her in this important straw poll means two things about informed voters: they want an alternative to Katherine Harris and that alternative is Will McBride.”
