Exporting Delay Tactics

As Katherine Harris fails to overwhelm the youngest Floridians above, dark rumors abound that her state Republicans are is picking up campaign ideas from Texas:
It may be a case of wishful thinking, but some Florida Republicans are contemplating what could be the most bizarre turn yet in Rep. Katherine Harris' beleaguered run for the U.S. Senate.

According to their speculation, Harris would withdraw from the race if she wins the GOP primary Sept. 5.

State Republican Party executives would then appoint a replacement for Harris, an option under Florida's newly revised election law. That replacement would face incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Orlando, in the November general election.
The big difference is that in Florida, unlike Texas where Tom Delay is trying this, they changed the law last year to allow this dodge.
