Leroy Collins Jr for Senate by Mitch E. Perry08/17/06
The ST. Petersburg Times reported today that US Republican Senate candidate Katherine Harris had incorrectly listed several Florida politicians as having endorsed her candidacy, when they have not.
The list includes Congressmembers Ginny Brown-Waite, Mark Foley, Cliff Stearns and Jeff Miller.
Harris said she checked with her staff and learned that the lawmakers had endorsed her but that it was before they knew she had three opponents in the September 5th primary.
One of those opponents is Leroy Collins Juinor, the 71 son of one of the most acclaimed Florida Governors, Leroy Collins Senior.
Leroy Collins spoke about his candidacy with WMNF this afternoon.(roll tape#1 o.q.â€?and thatâ€™s why I say one termâ€?)
Thatâ€™s Leroy Collins Jr., a Republican running in the GOP Senate raceâ€¦heâ€™s the son of former Democratic Florida Governor Leroy Collins.
