Governor Dave Heineman told the Lincoln Journal Star yesterday:
“…it’s very unlikely I’ll run for the Senate (in 2012).”
“The only reason I’m willing to take a look (at a future Senate race) is because people tell me they are so mad at Senator Nelson for his vote on health care. And the intensity of that is growing.”
Oh, well we won’t throw out our Heineman ‘12! buttons just yet…
And to keep you up on that Governor’s race, Heineman’s opponent just said he is in favor of amnesty for illegal aliens.
Take THAT Fremont!
Ben Nelson has declared that he wants all groups putting up political ads on TV to say who is funding them!
Hmm. You mean like the one paid for by a certain new Democrat group in the state put up last fall against Congressman Lee Terry?
(You know, we could have swore the Nebraska chapter of the Sierra Club said they didn’t like these “stupid” “offensive” ads, that are “not the way we do business in the state of Nebraska.”)
Maybe get the ball started rolling with that group. You know, just to show you mean what you say and you say what you mean, Senator.
Speaking of ads against Congressman Terry, the latest list by the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee has a list of 60 races they are reserving ad time for.
Of that, they are planning to spend against three GOP incumbent seats.
Lee Terry, currently, ain’t one of them.
Could be that the DCCC has a little less enthusiasm about Tom White than previously thought?
And speaking of doing as they say, we were reading Democrat candidate Tom White’s press releases from the other day.
Seems he wants FULL DISCLOSURE to be the name of the game for his bid to become another vote for the Pelosi/Obama Agenda.
So, in that spirit (inspired by a commenter), we ask the following of State Senator Tom White:
We call on State Senator Tom White to come clean to Nebraskans about his cozy connections with Lincoln lobbyists and special interests.
Lincoln lobbyists and special interests are and have been funding the majority of Tom White’s campaigns, and he owes Nebraskans an explanation of exactly what he’s promised them in return.
Senator White should disclose the following:
* His schedule for the Unicameral though his career.
* Any and all meetings with lobbyists, both during the day and after-hours, and the topics of discussion during those meetings – issues, policy, legislation, or other matters.
* Any legislative action taken at the request of lobbyists.
* Any statements written by lobbyists in whole or in part and used in floors speeches or read into the Unicameral Record by White.
Senator White’s coziness with Lincoln lobbyists has had a direct impact on his voting record.
Oh, we think there will be more to come on Tom White.
