Frustrated with his poor odds on getting the GOP nomination, he makes a career changing, major decision:
Switch parties! Become a Democrat!
That way he can…he can…sit around for a month and think about it?
Tony Raimondo said over the weekend that he would announce his decision for the Senate sometime after the holidays.
Well, if he’s NOT going to run, then why switch parties?
Raimondo, who was announced as the Manufacturing Czar for the President of the United States, who is friends with Senators (well, Senator, anyway) and employs hundreds of people, traveling the world in his position, is waiting for former ranch-hand Scott Kleeb to make up his mind.
And apparently if Kleeb decides to run, Raimondo will drop out.
(And would he then switch back parties?)
In any case, the embarrassment to the Nebraska Democrats of even suggesting that they’d embrace Raimondo, has now turned into an embarrassment for the 67 year old Raimondo. TR gets to hold his hat while a kid less than half his age, with no experience doing anything, twiddles his thumbs making impassioned videos about nothing.
Way to get out and lead there, Tony.
Cosmic Bob Kerrey made some news over the weekend by endorsing Hillary Clinton.
“I think his capacity to influence in a positive way without spending a penny the behavior of a lot of underperforming black youth today is very important, and he’s the only one who can reach them.”
Oh well. But really, he thinks Hillary is awesome.
Word is that Nebraska Democrat Party Executive Director Matt Conneally is trying to get Jeff Fortenberry to run against Jeff Fortenberry for the 1st District Congressional seat. No word yet from Fortenberry.
