Where Did All These People Come From?

Suddenly Katherine Harris has 4 opponents in the Republican primary.

Tampa businessman LeRoy Collins Jr
Orlando attorney William "Will" McBride
Pinellas developer Peter Monroe
Tampa attorney Belinda Noah

Okay, drifters, get to researching! The probability that one of these is a wacko is high!

UPDATE I: Belinda Noah already has a campaign web site up. And it's on Blogger?!?!?! YE GODS! What hath the internet wrought?

UPDATE II: Thanks to a tipster, I now have Belinda Noah's official website.

UPDATE III: William McBride was admitted to the Florida BAR in 2003. So either he's a late bloomer, a transient or a young'un.

UPDATE IV: Pete Monroe helped clean up the S&L mess. You know the Bushes and failed lending institutions just go together like peas and carrots.

I ran Belinda Noah and Will McBride through FL bar searches (both members in good standing), Martindale-Hubbell (McBride's not on there) and Westlaw (nothing for either one). But McBride interestingly shares a name and profession with the 2002 Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill McBride. Wonder if he's hoping to cash in on a little holdover name recognition (though he's in the wrong primary to do that). Belinda Noah gives me the earliest "possible whackjob" vibes. It's just a matter of digging, there.
