Katherine Harris begins Senate campaign

The AP reports that Katherine Harris has officially kicked off her Senate campaign.

In her formal announcement, Harris offered a glance at several issues she said she will target, including taxes, homeland security, health care and hurricane assistance.

"After an extended listening tour which begins today, I will fully outline my agenda for Florida — a road map for change that remains heavy on security and light on taxes; strong on defense but even stronger for those who man our defense; for health care not limited by cost or availability; and relief for those in trouble that bridges every storm while harboring no excuse for delay," Harris said.

The Florida Representative is most famous for her role in the 2000 presidential recount where as then-secretary of state she made the highly controversial decision to keep her oath of office and uphold Florida election laws.

Harris is expected to win her Senate bid handily and without a single hanging-chad.
