We have learned that Glenn Freeman has decided to challenge Congressman Lee Terry for the Republican nomination in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District.
Freeman is a past chair of the Douglas County party and the Objective Conservative blog states that he is a teacher of the U.S. Constitution. We have contacted Mr. Freeman for more on his background.
Unlike Rep. Terry’s other GOP challengers, the 76 year old Freeman has been involved in local party politics for some time, so we are uncertain his reasoning behind challenging Terry.
We hope to have more info in tomorrow morning’s post.
Feel free to comment.
Crazy day, so we will just have a few brief notes here and try to update later today.
First, Crossroads GPS has said they will drop an additional $500K into Nebraska TV ad buys (in Lincoln and Omaha) against Ben Nelson.
“We want Ben Nelson to recognize that 2012 will be an extraordinarily grueling proposition in the case he decides to run,” said Jonathan Collegio, a Crossroads spokesman, in confirming the buy.
Crossroads began the two-week blitz last week with a spot blasting Nelson’s vote in favor of health care reform legislation. The ad will run through December 21. The group has reserved about $130,000 in broadcast and cable television time in Omaha and Lincoln over the next two weeks, according to a Republican source keeping tabs on the ad market.
After a break for the holidays, the ads will return in the middle of January, and Crossroads has purchased time through the end of March, the data show. In total, Crossroads has reserved $519,000 in ad time.
This is after the $1.25 million the Democrats have thrown in for ads for Nelson already.
Think they have any more planned for the Capital One Bowl?
And here is Crossroads GPS’s new ad calling out the President on Solyndra. The buy on this is national cable stations:
Thanks and hopefully more later.
Oh, and if you’re buying stuff on Amazon.com (via Leavenworth Street’s links) it’s a good idea to make those purchases today, as the free delivery times generally say, “up to 8 days”. That puts you right at next Friday. They often come much earlier, and it says you still have 6 days left for the free shipping, but that’s the safe bet.
Of course you can always do the one or two-day delivery. But if you do that, look into the Amazon Prime thing.
