Most Floridians do not realize that Katherine Harris will have to defeat three other Republicans in the Senate Primary.
One interesting challenger is William McBride;
“McBride, 33, grew up in Florida as the son of migrant workers and built himself into a successful businessman able to put millions of his own money into the race, said Lew Oliver, chairman of the Orange County Republican Party.
“He has a lot of potential,” Oliver said. “He has the assets to run a respectable and credible campaign.”
If that personal money isn’t enough, McBride has access to millions more through his wealthy in-laws. McBride is the son-in-law of Stuart Epperson, co-founder and chairman of Salem Communications, the nation’s largest Christian radio broadcasting network.
Salem Communications owns more than 100 mostly AM radio stations across the country, including a dozen in Florida, broadcasting to an estimated 5 million listeners a week. The company also owns Christian-oriented magazines and Web sites.”
