These things tend to not be terribly significant, but…
An alert reader noted to us that “FloodForGovernor.com” was registered just a few months ago, by a Norfolk internet guy.
This could just as likely be someone protecting the name for future use, but it is notable as Speaker Mike Flood (of Norfolk) had his name in the news on the illegal immigrant pre-natal care issue. Differing with the Governor — who has endorsed Rick Sheehy in 2014.
Funny thing is, we have not heard Lt. Governor Rick Sheehy’s opinion on ANYTHING when these types of issues come up. Maybe he has to keep a low profile so as not to publicly differ with the Governor on issues. But at some point, one would think the press would start asking.
We are awaiting Deb Fischer’s first ad of her Senate campaign, and will post it here as soon as we get it.

Gonzo reporter James O’Keefe went into U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s voting precinct and asked for and received Holder’s ballot to vote. It should be noted that O’Keefe looks nothing like Holder.

An alert reader reminded us that this might have been an interesting point the other day when Nebraska’s voter ID bill got filibustered to death in the Unicameral…

We will discuss more tomorrow.
