Democrat Rep. Brad Ashford will…probably…vote against the proposed Iran Nuclear deal…unless something better comes along.
He told the OWH: “If that’s what we get to vote on, I’m not going to vote for it the way it is.”
Is there some other proposal that is out there that we don’t know about? Sure Senator Deb Fischer and others have told John Kerry to go back and negotiate a better deal. But Kerry has insisted that the crappy deal that they negotiated is going to be as good as it’s gonna get.
But Congressman Ashford has also said he will “continue to listen to all parties” (translation: “woo me at the White House!!!”).
Of course that’s a meager bone he has thrown to his likely angry Democrat constituents. It is still unlikely that he would get primaried, but his polling must tell an interesting story.
But Ashford does toss in one final liner that’s a hoot:
“Many Republicans seem to be opposing the agreement simply because Obama is for it.”
Right. THAT’s why. How about you add that they’re racist too, just for the cherry on top.
Boy are we lucky to find someone as thoughtful as Ashford (who is in a tightly contested race)…who is willing to vote the way his consultants tell him.
(Oh, but he’s still willing to listen!!!!)
And the day before Ashford announced, Rep. Jeff Fortenberry announced his opposition to the Iran deal.
So that’s 5 for 5 of the Nebraska Congressional delegation.
Wondering which of these five Don Walton will declare did NOT give careful, thoughtful consideration to the President’s deal.
Someone must have been haphazard and obtuse, right?
Looking forward to that column (as well as the recognition and lament that the Bluejays are now in first place in the East).
The Marco Rubio for President campaign announced that they have a new Nebraska state chairman.
He is Carlos Castillo. You will remember Castillo as the architect behind Dave Heineman’s 2006 GOP Governor’s primary victory over Tom Osborne. He also worked in the Heineman administration as the Director of Administrative Service
“I’m proud to serve as Marco Rubio’s Nebraska state chairman. As we saw in the debate last Thursday, Marco is a conservative leader who has a positive vision for building a New American Century. I look forward to leading Marco’s campaign in Nebraska.”
Castillo is currently the VP of Government Relations for Charles W. Herbster’s Conklin Company.
Serendipitously, this announcement came just after my interview with Douglas County Republican Party Legal Counsel, Garth Glissman, who declared his preference for Senator Rubio in the Presidential race. (Glissman was not aware of the announcement.)
He noted the very future oriented view that Rubio holds, and the youthful spirit of the campaign.
Hey, I’m not recommending it.
But if this email server stuff REALLY hits the fan for Hillary…and it could…
…You can say you saw this here first:
