|Description||Though polls suggest Florida's U.S. Senate race is all but over, tonight's first debate between the candidates will be one of the state's more intriguing political events for this reason: Katherine Harris. |
For the past year, the long-shot Republican congresswoman, already famous for her role in the 2000 presidential election debacle, has created so much news and controversy in her bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson that her campaign has become an object of curiosity.
''Here's what people are wondering: Is she going to say something off the wall?'' asked Matt Towery, pollster and race analyst with the firm Insider/Advantage. ``Sad to say, she has become a parody of herself at times, and all Bill Nelson has to do is keep his head down and not mess up while she goes after him.''
So far, Harris, who is still explaining comments suggesting the separation of church and state is a ''lie,'' has had trouble getting a clean shot at Nelson before Nov. 7.
