Harris aims to solidify evangelicals’ support for her Senate bid

LAKELAND — Flanked by a banner that reads “Israel shall stand forever,” Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein sings a song in a rousing mix of Hebrew and English.
U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris is on her feet, stomping and clapping to the beat from her place on the stage.
The predominately Christian audience waves its arms to the music as Eckstein, the founder of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, praises Israel.
Next, Harris gets her turn.
“Nothing that we believe in the world would exist without you,” she says to Jewish leaders in the crowd. “We’re all sort of Jewish wannabes.”
It is sad how politicians will suck up to anyone who they think will get them elected. Seams that more and more politicians think that they have to get the approval from Jews and Israel before they can get elected.
