It is then not surprising that Brian’s interest is in military policy as it relates to the U.S. Senate campaign in Nebraska.
Brian’s piece in the York paper and his follow-up on his blog aren’t terribly shocking as far as the policies the various candidates laid out, but it is worth the read. Pat Flynn, Tony Raimondo and Mike Johanns all responded with positions that you would generally expect from them. (Flynn and Johanns both spoke with Brian, and the Raimondo campaign replied with a detailed e-mail.)
And Scott Kleeb? Well, Kleeb’s campaign told Brian that they:
“…were still building their campaign and not yet ready to answer detailed questions on these issues.”
Iraq and the U.S.’s military policy is only probably the predominant issue of the day, and has been since at least 2003. And, oh by the way, troops were in Iraq back in 2006 when Kleeb ran for national office and lost to Adrian Smith. Did he have an opinion back then?
And, oh by the way, Kleeb has been raising money, non-stop, since at least last summer, if not before, for his campaign of “A new brand of politics”.
Now you’d think that Kleeb, and his campaign, could give his positions on Iraq while sleeping. But I’ll let Brian sum it up here:
We’ll have to wait for his answers to one of the “biggest issues facing America,” and see how influential his contacts with the radical, far left defeatists at the Daily Kos are to those answers.
