FL-Sen: Nelson (D) Crushes Harris (R)

Posted by DavidNYC

Oh man. The Florida GOP, already pissed at Katherine "Cruella" Harris for not dropping out in favor of a less-hated candidate, must be really steamed now:

Nelson 3Q Amount Raised: > $2M
Harris 3Q Amount Raised: < $1M

Nelson Cash-on-Hand: $6.5M
Harris Cash-on-Hand: D/K

Less than 1 mil for Harris? Yeesh. Jim Pederson raised about three quarters of a mil in about three weeks - in a much smaller state. Harris clocks in at under a mil in the two months since she first officially announced. It's also nice to see Bill Nelson with so much scrilla in the bank. Makes me breathe a bit easier about this race, that's for sure.

Let's just hope that GOP activists don't get enough sense to veto Harris' nomination in the primary. They have a much more electable candidate in West Palm Beach Congressman Mark Foley, who I believe is also contesting the seat. With luck, the Florida GOP will feel too indebted to Harris for her subterfuge in 2000 to flee her sinking ship.

If I am not mistaken, Foley is semi-secretly gay - or perhaps as John Aravosis might put it, a closet heterosexual. If this was enough to tank Dreier, it might bring Foley down, too - or it might even be the reason he chose not to run in the first place.
