Sarasota Herald-Tribune (08.11.06), via TPMMuckraker:
"Katherine Harris won't have to worry about her opponents in the U.S. Senate race taking more shots at her during a candidates' 'showdown' in Jacksonville today. They weren't invited." Harris won't face opponents in forum
"Although the Florida League of Cities promoted its forum today as one of the first to bring all of the gubernatorial and Senate candidates together, the nonpartisan group didn't invite any of the three Republicans challenging Harris on the Sept. 5 ballot." They also invited Senator Bill Nelson, "who is unopposed in the Democratic primary", and who "has already said he won't be able to attend." "So that leaves just Harris to talk from 3:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the 'first of the major showdowns' before next month's election." "'It's a one-person debate,' said Chris Ingram, a former Harris spokesman, who is now the spokesman for LeRoy Collins, one of Harris' three Republican challengers. 'I hope she doesn't lose.'"
