Notes from the campaign trail, Part 2

Rumor has it that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, all but certain to be a 2016 presidential candidate, will be the main draw at a Nebraska Republican Party fundraiser this spring. Stay tuned for details.

After months of speculation, Omaha attorney David Domina is set to announce his candidacy for U.S. Senate as a Democrat. Rumors swirled for months that Domina would take the plunge for either the Senate seat opened by Mike Johanns’ retirement or challenge U.S. Rep. Lee Terry for the 2nd District seat. Domina’s announcement is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Capitol Rotunda. After a luncheon in Omaha, he’ll embark on a six-day tour of the state.

Bart McLeay, an Omaha attorney and Republican candidate for Senate, has a new video about agriculture. McLeay’s grandfather served Nebraska’s farmers and ranchers after opening a medical practice in Stapleton in 1900, and McLeay says he will continue to fight for Nebraska’s ag producers. As a lawyer, he has represented landowners along the Niobrara River and protected irrigation rights on the Republican River.

Over the weekend, Jordan Gehrke senior advisor to Republican Senate candidate Ben Sasse,  Tweeted this unseemly artwork. Two unrelated quotes taken out of context and made 50 years apart? Very classy, Sasse. What’s next? Hitler and Obama?
