We talk alot about the Jon Bruning, Don Stenberg and Deb Fischer GOP Senate campaigns.
But we have NOT forgotten about Pat Flynn for Senate, who has been running longer than any of them! Pat has a new, exciting ad up! See it here:
It is our understanding right now that this spot will be on local cable, maybe on FOXNews, so keep your eyes peeled.
(And speaking of eyes…)
Saturday is the GOP State Central Committee meeting. At the meet, there will be a motion to endorse all incumbents (Congress, State Senators, Board of Education, Public Service Commission and Board of Regents).
In support of that motion, the following flyer is being handed out tomorrow by the Lee Terry folks. Take a look:

The Terry folks are reiterating Terry’s conservative ratings — also, they are teeing up the issue that his opponents say they are more conservative than him on spending issues, but want almost $1 trillion more in spending than he does.
We will watch to see how this all comes down.
Also regarding the NE-2 race, the DCCC announced new additions to their Red to Blue program yesterday –their top targets against incumbent Republicans. For instance, western Iowa’s Rep. Steve King is on the list. But…
Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District is NOT on the list.
Interesting in that if they thought Congressman Lee Terry would be weakened by the upcoming GOP primary, they’d be in this race now — adding either John Ewing or Gwen Howard, or both, to the list.
This is the same program that flooded the Omaha area with $1M in attack TV ads, radio and mail against Terry in 2008. They had Tom White in Red to Blue in 2010, but didn’t end up funding him much.
Well, Bob Kerrey originally, by himself, set his U.S. Senate decision (and announcement?) deadline for January 12th. Then, after that date came and went, he reset for…midnight Saturday, January 21st?
Well, he tells WOWT that he hasn’t decided yet. So there ya go.
Cosmic Bob tells the OWH it ain’t gonna happen this weekend! Could be next week? Maybe not! Who knows!
Cosmic Bob Kerrey already flaking out? Who had mid to late January in their office pool?
Have a great weekend! Cheer on your respective sporting team to winning their match!
