There is a new spot going up on behalf of Governor candidate Beau McCoy by the American Future Fund.
See it here:
Like many of the candidates, this one touts McCoy’s connections to Governor Dave Heineman.
Not a bad way to go these days for this intro ad.
…though we know one Gov candidate who will NOT trod that route:
State Auditor Mike Foley.
In fact, we heard that at last night’s Sarpy County Central Committee meeting, Foley was asked about the Governor’s opposition to expanding Medicaid in Nebraska.
After Foley gave an analysis without clearly answering whether he was for or against expansion of Medicaid, he was quizzed again on it.
And again, Foley, we are told, did not answer whether he was for or against Medicaid expansion.
Should he clarify his position in the affirmative, this would be another item where he clearly differs from a Heineman policy — first on taxpayer funded benefits to illegals, second on the death penalty and third on Medicare.
Voters in the Governor’s race should at least find some clear distinctions between the candidates.
Over in the Senate race, we have seen Ben Sasse featured on the cover of conservative magazine National Review along with his online ads.
Now the Shane Osborn campaign has taken to the webpages of National Review Online as well.
But not to be outdone, Sasse has his up there as well (though we would argue that by using the NR typeface, it makes it a bit confusing that it is an ad, as opposed to something from National Review that one might just gloss over. Though not a huge deal…).
The online world continues to battle regarding these two, as a proxy war between Mitch McConnell and Jim DeMint.
Very strange aspect to it all.
Hey, we came up with the new and improved Sochi Olympic Rings!
If you haven’t seen it online, watch the opening ceremonies tonight and you will get the gist.
(My, we’re clever…)
Have a great weekend and root on the Lumberjack Wragge Bombers!
