The OWH reports that Jane Kleeb announced at the Adams County Democrat convention that she wants to be the new chairperson of the state Democrat party. (Or maaaaybe, she does…)
You see, this way, the Clintons and the rest of the Democratic machine can funnel money to her and her husband (see the Wall St. Journal for the entire story), without worrying that she is not on board, with the rest of the Democrat party cronies.
At least Dick Holland will give a sigh of relief that he doesn’t have to fund EVERYTHING that she does.
Sasse on the 4-Way Bandwagon
We know that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse reads National Review (and, at least his staff reads Leavenworth St.) so it is likely he saw Jonah Goldberg’s suggestion that a FOURTH Presidential candidate stirs the campaign pot, in a way that just a third does not.
Sasse tweeted earlier…

These were among a series of Tweets that Sasse sent out regarding Bernie Sanders last evening.
As noted here (before Jonah, I might add) a major third party candidate will lose badly — and will throw the election the opposite way of where ever they’re coming from. (i.e., a Romney run would guarantee a Hillary election.) BUT, if two more major candidates get in — say a Bernie AND a Romney — then things become MUCH more interesting.
Trump has been needling Bernie to jump in as a third party candidate lately, but it isn’t clear if he has thought through a fourth party candidate. It is likely he figures he can crush them all. But it would make for a crazy scene.
Look for the media to quadruple-down on this concept.
Borchers sees it
And just to round things out, former Creighton Law Dean Pat Borchers, may have been vanquished in his run for the Legislature, but he hasn’t quit giving his thoughts out.
Here on his blog, Borchers presents the first in a series of posts about his thoughts on the Presidential race.
(He hasn’t jumped onto the four-party scenario yet, but there’s time.)
