Katherine Harris Makes Nice

Seven weeks after Katherine Harris, a born-again Christian, raised hackles by telling a Baptist newspaper that “If you’re not electing Christians then in essence you are going to legislate sin,” she tried to make nice with Jewish leaders in West Palm Beach.

Harris is trailing badly in her race against Sen. Bill Nelson. Nelson leads Harris by a 56 percent to 31 percent margin among registered voters, with 11 percent undecided, according to a recent poll by Quinnipiac University.
