First, an excuse to run a long ago suggested Separated At Birth:
State Senator Brad Ashford and Jerry Springer.
Just a quick post to point you to KMTV reporter Joe Jordan’s blog, where he says that the Nebraska Dems have asked ANOTHER Republican to run as a Democrat for Congress.
Republican State Senator Brad Ashford turned down Dem E.D. Matt Conneally’s suggestion that he run against Rep Lee Terry.
The Executive Director of the Nebraska Democrat Party, Matt Conneally, called former United States Senator Bob Kerrey (D-,1989-2001) to see if Kerrey would
call Ashford. Kerrrey tells me he did call Ashford, but didn’t ask Ashford to switch. According to Kerrey he just asked Ashford if Ashford was considering the move. Ashford tells me he told Kerrey, “No.”
We get the feeling that Conneally is just standing outside the GOP HQ in Lincoln, seeing who walks out, and asking if they’ll run for Congress.
