New Candidates for Senate and Gov

The battle for Nebraska’s U.S. Senate seat and Governor’s office recently got more crowded:

Joining the fight for the Senate is shop-owner Dori Settles (you can see her campaign web-site here). Ms. Settles is running on a platform of… oh who really cares? Notably, she blames her decision to run as a write-in candidate on Pete Ricketts’ “Farmer Nelson” ad (which is ironic, because I blamed my decision to get up and make a turkey sandwich on the same ad).

It should also be noted that from her appearance on KPTM, she looks a little like actress Laura Linney.

And what would a Governor’s race be without…Mort Sullivan! But the difference in this one is that Mort’s name will actually be on the ballot (via Mort’s website). And with the name ID of David Hahn these days (i.e., next to zippo), Mort has an outside chance of beating Hahn, just on name recognition alone.

(We should also add that while Ben Nelson’s website features Nellie catching one fish, Mort has a shot with TWO fish, and that means something somewhere…we think…)

Notice the absence of a fishing poll in Mort's picture?

Mort Sullivan caught those fish with his bare hands. Mort Sullivan doesn't sleep. He waits. I heard Mort's tears cure cancer. Too bad he never cries.

Or is that Chuck Norris? Meh, whatever.

A platform of honesty, clean grass-roots style campaigning and a willingness to work - what more could any citizen want from a candidate?

Well, notably, a photo of you having just caught THREE game-fish. That would be a start.
