We heard from him a few months ago when he announced he wasn’t running because Hillary would be too much of a drag on the ticket. He gave 2008 to Congressman Lee Terry and said maybe 2010 would be good. (In the mean time, Rich Carter jumped in the race, God bless his soul.)
But with the Obasm that Dems are having lately, it would seem that Esch has had a change of heart.
We look at the old Esch for Congress campaign site, which hadn’t changed in four hundred sixty-some days, and see this:
We’re looking forward to Esch and Carter taking shots at each other, just like…
…the Dem Senate race that has finally livened up!
As we noted yesterday, Scott Kleeb jumped right out of the box knocking Tony Raimondo for becoming a Democrat. Apparently that will be Kleeb’s main issue for why Nebraskans should send Scott to the U.S. Senate.
And over at the Raimondo HQ? After Tony was done bashing Mike Johanns and remembered that he hadn’t gotten the nomination yet, he let this one fly against Kleeb (and his rip off of the Obama slogan):
Scott comes out of education. I come out of business. What has business had to do with the last two decades. Change. Change. Change.
The appropriate political response here is, RrRRRRRRrrr! Cat fight!
(Of course, during all that time at Behlen, it seems that Raimondo didn’t have time to do much public speaking. You can take a look at his announcement speech here, just as long as you have a pillow nearby.)
In the mean time we’d like to point you over to the very well done Mike Johanns website, where you’ll find at least four new videos up. They’re short, to the point, and we’d say well-produced.
Johanns campaign manager Chris Peterson is also having fun batting away the Kleeb and Raimondo accusations during Spring training. It will be fun watching them scurry when the Johanns camp marries the Dem nominee to all of Obama’s positions. You know, the ones that get a little more specific beyond Hope! and Change!…
