"One private poll I was shown (now however more than a week old), had the Nebraska Senate race between former state treasurer Shane Osborn and Midland University president Ben Sasse even, with the other candidates far behind. Osborn, having previously been elected statewide, began the race with a huge name ID advantage. The fact that Sasse has caught him suggests Sasse has the momentum and is now the favorite (and I gather that subsequent polling shows him pulling ahead). Osborn's campaign has, as a result, unleashed a wave of negative phone calls (of dubious veracity) about Sasse. These could slow his momentumbut Sasse probably has enough money to counteract them and continue to tell his story. Both are impressive candidatesyoung (Osborn is 39, Sasse 41), conservative, with interesting life experiencesand either would be a fine addition to the Republican Senate conference. But Sasse's distinctive potential to be an intellectual champion in the fight against Obamacare and a legislative leader in developing a conservative reform agenda may well carry the day.

Now Bruning wants to be governor, and Sarah Palin has swung in and endorsed Ricketts as well as Sasse.
Bruning and Osborne will likely lose their primaries. Two more Establishment choices down!
It is states like Nebraska where our efforts really pay off. Getting two solid conservatives into the Senate from that state would be HUGE!
I actually think I know that guy. I mean, the school is in my hometown, and the name sound familiar.
