FL-Sen: Time to Start a Dead Pool

Posted by DavidNYC

Go read this post on Kathy Harris over at Kos. Then come back here and tell me it isn't time to start a political dead pool. But I'm not in the least bit happy at this development - I've long been rooting for this kind of thing not to happen. If Harris goes, someone with a lot less baggage (like FL state House Speaker) Alan Bense will jump in. Florida's filing deadline isn't until May 12th, so a lot could happen before then.

Bense still polls behind Nelson though because Floridans don't see a reason to dump Nelson he isn't corrupt hasn't done anything wrong and he has sided with Floridans by putting in Anti-Off shore drilling laws in as well as voting agenst the Medicare/RX which i belive hurt the Junior Senator Mel Martinez. All i'm saying is it would be a very big suprize if Nelson lost.

What about after May 12? If she makes it past that date, is there any way that Republicans could still jettison her and replace her with a handpicked nominee? I'm hoping that Florida's election laws are nothing like New Jersey's...

I continue to hope. Among the many things we know about Katherine Harris:

1) she is combative, tenacious, and stubborn
2) she seemed unfazed by the lack of enthusiasm for her candidacy on the part of the national and state GOP
3) she believes she is entitled to this seat for services rendered
4) she has untapped personal reserves of fortune to pump into the race if she chooses.

I hope she hangs in there, and beggars herself in the process.
It would be nice to see her blasted to a cinder in 2006, never to rise again.

At this point, if I lived in Florida,
I would be tempted to vote in the Republican primary, to keep her propped up.

Do we have any viable Dems to run for the House seat of the wicked witch? I would think that this is a Dem trending district as Sarasota & Longboat Key is loaded with older Dems from the Northeast. It could be low hanging fruit in November.

Can we start talking about what happens if Virgil Goode (aka, Representative A) gets indicted? The Democrats are gearing up for a primary in his district, and the two candidates couldn't be more dissimilar. I mean it's really a Rodriquez-Cuellar, Lamont-Lieberman situation in my opinion, with Al Weed as the progressive, grassroots candidate, and Bern Ewert as the DLC/establishment pick. If Virgil gets indicted after the filing deadline, I want my victory-by-default to go to a real Democrat.

Al Weed
