Is the upcoming GOP Gubernatorial Primary really a battle between the GOP Giants Chuck Hagel and Tom Osborne?
Let’s look back at Hagel’s decision to endorse Dave Heineman in April of 2005:Word from insiders was that Chuck tired of TO dragging his feet about his decision on the Gov’s race, and still is bitter that Osborne didn’t run for the U.S. Senate in 2000, paving the way for Earl Ben Nelson (whom Hagel loathes).
1. Will Hagel tape commercials endorsing Governor Dave?
2. Will Osborne care?
3. Will Nebraskans care?
4. And what will be the result of this cold-war within the party when the election is over, particularly when Hagel is up in ’08?
And of course the big question, will Governor TO give Lawrence Phillips a second chance in his administration? I’m just asking!
