U.S. Senate debate?



The Florida League of Cities invited candidates running for various offices to participate in forums this Friday in Jacksonville.

Of the five Senate candidates, only Rep. Katherine Harris and Sen. Bill Nelson were invited. That leaves out the three others vying for the GOP nomination - retired admiral LeRoy Collins, Orlando attorney Will McBride and Safety Harbor developer Peter Monroe.

Harris will attend. Nelson declined because of a schedulng conflict.

"I think it's unfair,'' said Monroe, who said he would spend the day trying to raise some money instead.
