Republican 2nd District Congressional candidate retired General Don Bacon has a new ad out.
See it here:
This ad is currently in rotation from Bacon’s previous buy.
It’s a whimsical ad, that mainly looks to up Bacon’s name ID.
I like it…but I’m not crazy about the ending. He asks the guy, in theory, if he likes “(Don) Bacon”, and the guy who is shopping for bacon responds that EVERYBODY loves…(small “b”) bacon. But that isn’t really the answer he was looking for.
Better would have been Don referencing bacon (the meat), and the person responding about how much they like Bacon (the person).
But I do like that they changed the ending tag to add the office (as opposed to just the one star):
Name and office. Name and office. Name and office. (Just like on the ballot.)
In any case, this will likely kick up Bacon’s name ID, which is the goal. Oh, that and the tidal wave of ads about the GOP primary by Brad Ashford and his DC cronies.
The Heidi Game
The final rounds of the Presidential campaign have made their way to Nebraska.
Team Ted Cruz will be in Omaha, Fremont and Norfolk today. Here are the details for Heidi (Mrs. Ted) Cruz’s visit:
Mrs. Cruz we suggest getting the Goodie Roonie, a corner piece of the hamburger pizza, and of course the onion rings.
No word, yet, about visits next week by Ted, John Kasich, or possibly The Donald.
All of the national folks have been saying that Nebraska will go Cruz, but there has yet to be any poll giving any solid numbers.
Now with the coordinated effort of Kasich pulling out of Indiana, and Cruz pulling out of Oregon and New Mexico, it isn’t clear if therefore they all will be competing in Nebraska.
And of course, once the votes are cast, the net big question will be who will be elected delegates that weekend to go to the convention in Cleveland — and who those delegates would support on the 3rd ballot.
That has the potential to be as big of a deal as the vote on Tuesday.

Since this will go up before the correction, just a very important note in Robynn Tysver’s story on Chip Maxwell in the OWH:
Maxwell went to Boston College, not Boston University.
