Posted on 10/21/2012 4:36:42 PM PDT by Kolath
Nebraskans are fortunate this year to have two serious, qualified candidates seeking their votes for the states next U.S. senator.
Democrat Bob Kerrey and Republican Deb Fischer have offered voters a robust, intelligent, largely on-point debate of the critical issues facing the nation.
We recommend Fischer, a Valentine rancher and two-term state senator.

But the Democrat walked away from that job in 2001 after two terms, for personal and professional reasons that are perfectly understandable. He left behind critical issues those on which he had shown leadership and which remain on the front burner today: Social Security and Medicare reform, health care, national security, the nations intelligence-gathering machinery. If he had remained a senator, he could have had a major impact on them all.
His somewhat clumsy return to Nebraska after a decade in New York City first deciding not to run, then a last-minute change of heart and address has left many Nebraskans thinking he only came back to be a senator again.
Fischer, the Republican candidate, has proved herself to be a smart, hardworking and able legislator during two terms in the Nebraska Legislature, someone who has earned the respect of friend and foe alike with her lawmaking skills.
Go Big Red! And Go Home to New York, big red (as in commie) Bob Kerrey. Nebraskans got a good taste of what it would been like if Kerrey had stayed in office - his name is Ben Nelson.
The Lincoln rag endorsed both Obama and Kerrey. I sent them a twitter message that said “You sure like picking losers.”
Carpetbagger Bob has gotten really nasty here in the last two weeks. They have now brought out the issue where Deb Fischer and her family sued another local family over a land dispute. The RATs are running ads with people from around Fischer’s hometown talking negative about her. Too bad that turd Bob Kerrey has zero chance to win. He’s an Obamacare goofball that votes with liberals 90% of the time even though they’ve tried to paint him as a bipartisan Ben Nelson type. People in Nebraska aren’t falling for his phony baloney and Fischer will win this seat easily.
The “Lincoln Urinal-Star” always endorses the Dems. Haven’t subscribed in 30 years. They can KMA.
