Three Republican candidates are sprinting to the finish of a contentious GOP primary for the U.S. Senate, with only two weeks to go until Nebraskans cast their votes — and accusations are flying everywhere.

This week, the editor of a conservative publication accused one Republican candidate of attempting to torpedo a U.S. Senate primary opponent, potentially opening the race for another individual running in the GOP primary whom the pundit has accused of being a Democrat masquerading as a Republican.

A recent poll commissioned by the Sasse campaign shows him leading the race with 31 percent of the vote, followed by Osborn at 25 percent and Sid Dinsdale with 22 percent of the vote.

Dinsdale is a Democrat and she is going to help him take the GOP nomination?

And so once again ego of the wanna be politician is more important than anything. It is one of the reasons we are in the mess we are in
