Word has it that Tom Osborne was LIVID that Dave Heineman got the endorsement of the Farm Bureau (Heineman gets Farm Bureau endorsement – OWH – 4/22/06).
Consider that TO represents the ag-dominant third district; serves on the House Ag Committee; and has revolved his entire political career around ag and rural development.
Note TO’s (steaming/frustrated) comment: “I’m not surprised at anything anymore.”
(Should we look for Frank Solich’s endorsement of DH sometime soon? Are even stranger things ahead…)
