Run, Katherine, run!
According to the Miami Herald:
U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, a central figure in the 2000 Florida presidential recount, will announce her decision Friday on whether to seek the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, officials said.
Harris, who oversaw the disputed count that gave George W. Bush a crucial 537-vote victory over Al Gore in Florida, will hold a news conference in her hometown of Sarasota to discuss her future. Her decision has led to wide speculation, with polls showing her as the immediate front-runner in the GOP primary if she enters the race.
“I am grateful for all the encouragement, energized about tomorrow and at peace with my decision,” Harris said in a statement.
Harris is seen here at a recent fundraiser with, oddly enough, Rosie O’Donnell.
Thanks. I’ll be here all week.
