Don Stenberg will announce his U.S. Senate bid at 9:30 am Tuesday morning (March 1st).
And if you were wondering how he plans to attack Jon Bruning in the GOP primary, look no further than the Stenberg logo:
(Also note the giant quote on his campaign website.)
A little more subtle would have been:
“Stenberg: He didn’t write articles in the Daily Nebraskan as a liberal, we can tell ya that doncha know!”
We will just throw it out here:
Not sure what Jon Bruning was back in his Law School days. Was he a raging lib? Maybe he was.
But he has been out of school for a while now, and there is nothing in his legislative or AG record that shows him to be anything other than a hard-core conservative.
Ask any Nebraska Democrat if he isn’t conservative enough. Or any Republican, for that matter.
After everyone gets over the DN articles, at some point (or maybe already) GOP voters are going to ask, “OK, well what about the candidates after law school?”
Or, what are their plans for entitlement reform? Or their position on trade? Or what do they think needs to be done about helping entrepreneurs and small business? Or big business?
Because those are some of the details where they will probably have to come up with a plan, instead of reading the “social conservative” bullet points.
Do we think either one of these guys HASN’T walked the walk on those issues?
Do tell commenters.
