One of the final ads up in Nebraska’s 2nd District Congressional race. See it here:
That is up from the Congressional Leadership Fund, a group supported by Speaker Paul Ryan. It will start on cable, broadcast and digital in the Omaha media market beginning today through Election Day as part of CLF’s now $1.2 million independent expenditure campaign in #NE02.
The Crystal Ball
And Political prognosticator Larry Sabato, who has had the 2nd District in or leaning Democrat (i.e. Ashford) for the entire political season, now calls #NE02 a straight “Toss Up”:
“…we’re moving Nebraska’s Second Congressional District from Leans Democratic to Toss-up. There’s really no public polling there but at this point we could see it going either way, just like Maine’s Second Congressional District, where Clinton had seemed to be improving her chances before recent developments.”
But there HAS been private polling — which for some reason the OWH only decided to report when it was favorable to Brad Ashford — which shows Don Bacon up in BOTH polls.
Because that’s how it’s done.
