Jim Suttle has a new ad out called, “In The Past”.
See it here:
This spot, by Murphy Putnam out of Alexandria, Virginia, of course is misleading.
The immigration bill that is referenced, that may have done all sorts of “reforming of immigration”, also provided a giant amnesty for illegal aliens. And Hal Daub voted against amnesty for illegal aliens.
But hey, Murphy Putnam, ya know you, eh, left the “Starsky & Hutch” chase-scene music going while you’re talking about Suttle. So when you get right down to it, when people hear the “wocka-wocka-wocka” music, they’re thinking Jim Suttle in a pair of bell-bottoms. (Once again, not a visual we are happy about.)
And what is it you have against aerobics? A glance at the Prairie Life group schedule says that the “Step Jam” class is at 8:00 AM on Saturdays…
From the OWH: “Suttle declined to say Monday whether he would support a tax increase to address the city’s budget shortfall.“
Here, we will lay it out for you: All Omahans who want higher property taxes should vote Jim Suttle next week. There.

Annnnd the OWH made their Omaha City Council endorsements as well:
Dist 1: Pete Festerson (“down-to-earth manner“)
Dist 2: Ben Gray (Frank Brown has a “reputation as an officeholder who can be difficult to work with“)
Dist 3: Chip Maxwell (has a “proven ability and dedication to tackle tough budget and tax challenges“)
Dist 4: Garry Gernandt (“comfortable in mingling with constituents“)
Dist 5: Jean Stothert (“demonstrated the ability to work effectively“; has “a capable opponent“)
Dist 6: Franklin Thompson (“has a strong backbone“)
An OWH endorsement should not necessarily be held against a candidate.
