If the national GOP wants to feel positive about Pete Ricketts’s chances in November, they have only to look at Earl Ben Nelson’s actions in the past week:
1) An attack ad on Ricketts
2) An email to his “supporters” telling them Ricketts is negative because he has suggested that the Senate could turn Democrat
3) A gimmick “press conference” at Ted’s Sinclair in Omaha.

Earl campaign, beside the fact that you’re basing this latest free media goofiness off a throw-away line about Ricketts supporting a consumption tax, is this where you’re going, this early?
Marching in Seward doesn’t have the umph you desired, huh? Handing out stickers at Memorial Park wasn’t good enough for you? You really think this is going to stick?
I guess it’s official: these are desperate times for Earl’s camp.
(By the way, looking forward to your sound trucks rolling up and down Leavenworth Street in the near future. Love the old school politicking…)
