2006 GOP US Senate nominee, and co-owner of the Chicago Cubs, Pete Ricketts has made an announcement video for his candidacy for the 2014 GOP nomination for Nebraska Governor.
See it here:
He also has his website up at PeteRicketts.com.
That’s SOME kind of intro video.
Pete will NOT be outspent in this primary.
Also, as Tweeted by the OWH, Omahan Rex Fisher is NOT getting into any statewide races this year.
And as long as we’re putting up a post on a Saturday night, post Husker game, we got a kick out of this quote from a story on Watchdog about Tweeting politicians (and others).
This, from Democrat media guy Mike Nellis, from the Jim Suttle for Mayor campaign last spring:
“(Suttle) was really passionate about using the Internet during the campaign and that’s why I was brought on so early,” Nellis said. “Jean may have won the election, but we dominated online.
The Suttle Twitter account talked smack and took the fight to opponent Jean Stothert via Twitter.“We kind of enjoyed that a little bit,” Nellis said. “I think it’s an important part of a campaign.”
(“May have” won?)
This from a guy whose candidate lost by fifteen percent.
As noted by another (winning) politico, “they let tactics get ahead of strategy”.
Hey, the Huskers won big!
