Pete Ricketts finally has an endorsement ad from Governor Dave Heineman on the radio.
As we’ve been saying, and as everyone knows, Ricketts has to dramatically shore up the GOP base in order to have a shot against Ben Nelson. We’ve been looking for an endorsement from some of the GOP brethren, and this is a good start for Ricketts. One figures that a Chuck Hagel ad must be on the way (though that may depend on how Hagel is polling amongst Nebraskans these days).
In an ideal world for Ricketts, he would get endorsement ads from the likes of Don Stenberg and David Kramer as well – but our guess is that they all have their noses pointed towards 2008, and don’t want to seem like they’re giving Ricketts the nod forever.
So, with that in mind, here’s a new experiment with the (late) Friday Afternoon Poll!
