If you missed the Leavenworth St. post from this morning, regarding the DCCC’s ad buy for Chip Maxwell, be sure to go back and read it…and send it to your Republican friends.
In particular, send it to your mom or your dad or your grandma or your uncle who has no idea who the “DCCC” is. As a political op noted, catch that tagline:
“The D-C-C-C is responsible for the the content of this advertisement.”
Hmmm. Looking for the word “DEMOCRAT” there. Not so much, eh? That would be because they are trying to SLIP IT BY YOU.
Don Bacon held a presser in his campaign office this morning (wonder if Amanda McGill’s husband was hiding under the couch…) and proudly stated that he wears “Nancy’s Pelosi’s targeted fear with pride.”
Which he should. But just make sure you let some of the senior members of your family and friends understand just who it was who made that spot.
The funny thing is, all things being equal, Bacon and Maxwell have very similar positions — as often happens in primaries. But now Brad Ashford has made it crystal clear who he wants to run against. His Democrat Establishment cronies just pumped more cash into the Maxwell campaign ad budget than Maxwell and Bacon had raised combined.
And some say, “oh, well campaigns do this all the time…”. But no. No they don’t. Not like THIS anyway. They don’t just make a giant ad buy in the other party’s primary. This one will likely gain some national attention.
Just have to wait and see if 2nd District Republicans are paying attention.
And so you can follow along, here is the League of Women Voters debate from yesterday at the Omaha Press Club, moderated by the wily Gary Kerr!
This vid is from the Bacon campaign, and is busted into 2 parts:
The take-away was that the candidates didn’t differ much.
One area was that Bacon said he did not want to have American boots on the ground to fight ISIS. Maxwell disagreed, at least saying he didn’t want to rule it out.
Beyond that, jump in with your own observations.
Fischer staying cool
In her weekly press call, Senator Deb Fischer answered my question saying that she will not be campaigning with any of the Presidential candidates in Nebraska over the next two weeks.
She said that she had not been asked to, and further as a Marco Rubio supporter, she feels the Nebraska GOP voters should now have their say.
In former State Senator Jeremy Nordquist’s Sine Die video venerating term-limited State Senator Heath Mello, I would just like to point out that he used one of the photos created by moi, and posted here on Leavenworth St.
That would be Mello as the bowl-cutted one in the middle.
And as Homer says, “Moe’s their Leader!”
