A PAC controlled by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) is back on the air in Nebraska with an ad supporting state Treasurer Don Stenberg (R).
DeMint's Senate Conservatives Fund will spend an initial $234,000 to air the ad for most of March on statewide cable and broadcast television. The bio spot follows another ad DeMint aired for Stenberg in January.
All told, DeMint's PAC has spent almost one-half million dollars supporting Stenberg, with plans to sink much more into the race.
"Don Stenberg's a conservative leader who's won battles for smaller government, spending cuts, the death penalty, term limits," says the speaker in the ad. "These days, sending someone to Washington who just talked a good game doesn't cut it. Don Stenberg is the real deal."
The ad takes an implicit swipe at front-running Republican Jon Bruning, the state attorney general, whom Stenberg is challenging from the right. The Club for Growth, a fiscally conservative group, announced their support for Stenberg on Tuesday.

This is the race where Bob Kerrey declined to run, than announced, than dropped out. In any event, the next U.S. Senator will be a Republican in this safely Republican state, so we don’t have to worry about electability. Don Stenberg is the most conservative candidate running and deserves our support.
When will Jon Corleoni and the rest of the GOPe’s get the message and STOP the support for the RINO’s like Bruining?
Go Steinburg! Go Demint!
Stenberg has been running for various offices for years and has no chance of winning this one.
Is Kerrey still in the race? There was some confusion on FR earlier this evening. Some suggested he dropped out again today, but others said no he has not.
Conservatives who want to make a monetary contribution to support conservative candidates should continue to throw their GOP solicitations in the trash and donate directly to DeMint’s PAC.
“Is Kerrey still in the race?”
I haven’t seen anything (that I would believe) yet on this matter, but things (polling results, democrats competition not bowing out of the primary, etc.) haven’t been going well for this opportunistic carpetbagger. See following link.
Looking more and more like a definite Republican pickup whoever ends up with the nomination.
