George W. Bush Election Decider Katherine Harris Getting Hitched To Texas Banker!

Former Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, the woman at the center of the controversial election of President George W. Bush in 2000, says she’s “blessed” to have fallen in love again.

Harris, 59, is scheduled to be married to a Texas multi-millionaire over the next few days – three years after her first husband committed suicide in their Sarasota mansion.

“I never expected this would happen,” she said about her relationship with Richard Ware, a banker from Amarillo, Texas. “You know, I’d become a near recluse. I’m very blessed.”

When reached on her cellphone today, Harris played it close to the vest and declined to discuss how she met the 70-year-old Texan.

She wouldn’t confirm the rumor she’s tying the knot Saturday, and declined to discuss any of the nuptials’ details. A marriage license for Harris and Ware was issued last week in Amarillo, according to Potter County, Texas, records.

“Just let me make it down the aisle,” she said, “then call me back in a couple of weeks.”

Stealing a page from the Donald Trump playbook, she called reports of the Feb. 25 ceremony “fake news.”
