Another Tea Party Win - This Time Nebraska

Following on the footsteps of a Tea Party candidate winning the Republican Senate Nomination for Indiana, State Senator Deb Fischer has won the Nebraska Republican Senate primary, upsetting State Attorney General Jon Bruning and State Treasurer Don Stenberg who were also running and who had more money and old school Republican support, at least until former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain came into the picture in support of Senator Fischer.

This Tea Party victory sets up a race between Deb Fishcer and former senator Bob Kerrey (D) for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Ben Nelson (D)......remember him?,...the guy who took the special conditions or thinly hid bribes from Obama in order to support Obamacare? Kerrey is popular in Nebraska but lately has been getting heat from living out of state, in New York of all places, where he has served as the president of a school in New York City.

It is telling that Kerrey has been distancing himself from Obama and the Democratic party by emphasizing his record of deviating from his party's tax and spend methodology. This will be an interesting race. We'll see how long it takes before the dried up liberal women's menagerie starts bashing Senator Fischer.
