Sorry but because of technical difficulties, we are not able to give you a full-on, dissect the news, post.
We will do our best to put one up tomorrow.
In the mean time, feel free to weigh-in on…
- OWH’s half bio, half investigation on Deb Fischer’s Senate chances. It can all pretty much be summed up by Dave Kramer’s quote at the end: “Between Jon’s resources and the third-party resources on Don’s behalf, it’s going to be more difficult for her to get her message out.”
- OWH’s investigation of Jon Bruning, that everyone seemed to be waiting for. OWH says they, “reviewed hundreds of public documents related to his bank enterprises, mortgage loans and home equity lines of credit. The newspaper also sought out private attorneys, finance professors and some of Bruning’s business associates to sort through the complexities of his holdings.”
And yet, no smoking gun anywhere.
- And the OWH’s story on Don Stenberg today is lackluster, except maybe for the interesting political stuff at the end where Kay Orr says Don told her that he wasn’t using the Treasurer’s office as a steppingstone for a Senate run.
- If you were at the 2nd District debate on Friday, feel free to comment, and also weigh-in on whether an amendment in the U.S. Constitution can be…unconstitutional.
And then one more time, here is Lee Terry’s new ad, with the ad text below, and some comments from the Terry camp:
Narrator: A consistent conservative, standing up for Nebraska values, Congressman Lee Terry.
He stood up against Obama’s big government agenda, voted 157 times to cut $7 trillion in new spending and he’s fighting ObamaCare.
Lee Terry: We can’t keep spending money that we don’t have. It’s bankrupting this country and it’s ruining our kids’ futures.
Narrator: Lee Terry led the fight to pass a constitutional amendment requiring a balanced budget. He knows what’s at stake and he’ll keep fighting for us.
Lee Terry: I’m Lee Terry and I approve this message.
From the Terry camp:
The ad points to Terry’s record of voting 157 times to cut an additional $7 trillion in spending. His support for a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget and his opposition to the $1.7 billion federal healthcare law enacted in 2010 are also highlighted.
Each of the 157 votes is listed in the issues section of the Terry campaign web site. The congressman has supported dozens of proposals to eliminate local earmarks from bills that were considered on the floor of the U.S. House. Terry has also voted for numerous percentage cuts to bills or, in the case of the 2009 stimulus plan or 2010 healthcare law, opposed them outright. Had the Senate not blocked many of the reductions, federal spending would be $7 trillion less over the next decade.
