On this final week of the campaign, the NRCC has a new ad up about Brad Ashford in the #NE02 Congressional race. See it here:
You hear Ashford claim that he “doesn’t vote with Nancy Pelosi! Hardly at all!”
Only in the mind of a Democrat can he call voting with the Dem leader nearly 80% of the time as “hardly at all.”
And on that note, here is KETV’s Dave Robert’s interview with both Don Bacon and Speaker Paul Ryan, during Ryan’s visit to Omaha on Sunday:
Ah the Fishwrap…
Which makes the OWH recent endorsement of Ashford also laughable, for their logic. “See how bipartisan he is! Here are a few times he voted against the Dems!” Which was essentially the same reasoning behind support for Ben Nelson. “See, he’s a conservative Democrat!”
Except when they really need him.
Then he’s just a Democrat.
Do they REALLY think the Pelosi is pouring the cash into Omaha because she thinks Brad won’t vote with her?
But as long as we are on that endorsement…
The OWH went to pains on their Trump endorsement to point out that “Oh My, OWH owner Warren Buffett would NEVER influence our endorsements! He doesn’t say boo to us!”
Well, beside the fact that their Democrat boss, Warren, maxed out to Democrat Ashford, here’s a good one:
OWH editorialist, Cate Folsom?
She has a connection to Brad.
It seems that her husband was best man at Brad Ashford’s wedding.
Oh, and her son’s godfather?
And their response to Ashford’s campaign manager’s “sympathetic” Tweet?
Isn’t that precious?
Hey look, maybe they do really think that voting with your party over 3/4 of the time is “bipartisan”. That’s their prerogative.
But it is interesting to note that they didn’t bother to address some of the biases that might just seep into an endorsement. Why would they bother to tell you that?
F. Scott Fitzgerald
To quote Forrest Gump…
“And he liked to say the ‘F word’ a lot. “F this” and “F that”.”
My how things…haven’t…changed since Forrest’s day.
Here is the Dem’s vandalized Trump sign from last week:
Here are some local Dems who don’t like Speaker Paul Ryan
And then here are LOTS of local Dems — at their Douglas County Democrat meeting, where Former IBEW President Joe Orsi says Democrat Crystal Rhodes (Jane Kleeb’s Douglas County partner) told him,
“F___ You! F___ Labor! I don’t give a F___ about Labor!”
(Go to the 13:59 mark of the video of the local meeting here.)
This was all part of the contention that the local Democrats favor one Democrat over another Democrat so much that they left one of them off their endorsement card.
This is the sort of thing that happens when the locals have a seat SEWN UP!
Yes, that WAS conservative columnist George Will sitting next to Pete Ricketts in the owners’ seats in Wrigley the other night (as Leavenworth St. had live-tweeted at the time).
No word on whether they discussed Will leaving the Republican Party over his fierce #NeverTrump stance…
Git on up
Are you just deciding to follow the election now?
Well here is how to keep up on all things Nebraska politics!
Because that’s how YOU can stay up to date on the talk of Nebraska politics, 24/8 (you know, through Election Day)!
