First a quick Separated at Birth for the latest to join into the Omaha Mayor’s race…
Councilman Jim Suttle, former VP Spiro Agnew and VP hopeful Joe Biden (Agnew and Biden sent in by a reader).
So, as Pete Townshend and the boys said, Who’s next?
Nice turnout for the Obama-ites last night at their new HQ in Omaha. Somewhere between six and nine hundred people on a Wednesday night? Not bad. (Of course there could have been more if Mike Boyle would have moved his car out of the way, like the police asked.)
That should perk up the ears of the McCain-Palin campaign — if they’re interested in securing what could possibly be a very significant Electoral Vote in Nebraska’s 2nd District.
A visit by the GOP Presidential candidates to Omaha would likely go a long way towards reinvigorating the base and nailing down the vote.
Seen milling around, outside his campaign office on West Center Road in Omaha, trying to hone in on the press coverage for the GOP soiree next door — one Scott Kleeb.
Apparently sharing the spotlight later at the Obama party (though not sticking around for the whole gig) wasn’t good enough for Kleeb. So he tried his best to get the local media covering the GOP event to notice him.
No one bit…
Well, if it wasn’t clear before, it is crystalline now: Jim Esch’s plan for getting elected to Congress has nothing to do with his own background. Or experience. Or life story. Or positions. Or plans. Or even his personality.
His plan is to simply be the Democrat candidate riding on Barack Obama’s (hoped-for) coat tails.
Well, that’s a strategy, we guess.
Seen at the Obama office opening last night with Democratic State Senator, Steve Lathrop — one Republican State Senator, Brad Ashford.
The Nebraska Farm Bureau has endorsed Reps Terry, Fortenberry and Smith for Congress.
Yes, Smith and Fortenberry have races this year. We haven’t forgotten….
