Adrian Smith was the anti-Tom Osborne. At least the Tom Osborne that ran for Governor.
Smith courted Republican voters. He sought endorsements from all the right GOP groups. He touted his conservative credentials in his ads. He left no doubt as to whom GOP voters should support.
He ran a meat and potatoes GOP campaign against two others who has similar credentials. And now he will take Osborne’s seat.
(And while we originally thought Scott Kleeb (D) had a shot, we found this photo on Kleeb’s website. Nice knowin’ ya, Scott.)
