Are you looking forward to some college football with your political ads on Saturday?
You will be likely seeing just a few during the bathroom breaks of the Husker game tomorrow.
Lee Terry has two new ads up today.
The first, which is getting a little Twitter attention, is from the NRCC.
See it here:
The next, on the same theme, is from the Terry camp itself.
See it here:
Well, if anyone thought Terry was going to go light on the “Good Time” law stuff, that is out the window.
Brad Ashford is more or less getting the finger for both Nikko Jensen and Terrorist beheadings.
We won’t mince words here. I think we can all agree that is the impression voters are supposed to leave with from these spots.
You don’t go much harder than that, right?
Effective, or backfire?
If Terry wins this race — and most agree that if he is not behind right now, the race leans Ashford — then the heavy hand on these ads, among other strategies, will be credited.
If he loses, we doubt much blame will come back to these. Most will say it was lost already.
But while Brad Ashford is playing it very close to the vest right now, coming out and claiming your opponent is responsible for the Ebola virus isn’t exactly a victory lap move like, say, Ben Sasse is taking right now.
You can bet that the Ashford tracking shows things still pretty tight.
And then there’s the whole early ballot request matter, pushed from the Minimum Wage pushers. Heck, an interesting Q is, Would we be talking about Congressman Esch if that issue had been up back in those days?
And on yesterday’s middle of the afternoon debate, boy that was helpful, yeah?
We are sure that 2nd District Voters were glued to their screens, at local bars and Burger Kings, seeing those two flesh out the issues.
Oh you didn’t take the time out of your work day to watch the debate?
Well, then enjoy the ads during the football game.
We will keep you updated on anything we hear, in the mean time.
We always chuckle when a pol makes a statement saying that the major political move he made wasn’t political.
That was state Senator Steve Lathrop, on subpoenaing the Governor, on the hot button issue of the day, just before the election.
Now, Republicans, can someone please explain to us why Democrat Steve Lathrop is chairing this committee?
Here is Ben Sasse on Sean Hannity’s radio show from a few days ago.
At this point, it will be interesting to see what Sasse’s goals will be in the Senate.
Sasse’s talks to Hannity about the debt, Mideast conflict and education issues.
We don’t mean to say it’s been radio silence in the Governor’s race, but the most we hear(aside from the press-releasy type stuff) is Ricketts up by 12 points.
So, FWIW, here are a couple of ads, both on education, from the Hassebrook and Ricketts camps.
And we’re not saying every non-science class should be cut, but how DOES Music have such a stronghold in grade school curriculum? We get Art, but Music? We aren’t sure we ever gained anything from that class ever for eight long years of trudging off to the music room.
