SARASOTA — U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris will not enter the Republican primary for U.S. Senate, a GOP source said Friday, seeking instead to run for re-election to her seat in Congress.

Harris, the former Florida secretary of state who gained international attention during the 2000 presidential recount, was scheduled to announce her decision at a news conference later Friday, a Republican source in Florida close to the situation said. The source said Harris was making phone calls to supporters and friends to inform them of her decision.

Dang, I thought it was going to be a fun Senate race. But she was making both Gov. Bush and the White House nervous, knowing that every time she showed up, so would memories of the 2000 recount. So Karl probably put the kibosh on it.

Okay, back to work.
