Jim Vokal endorsed Hal Daub this afternoon.

And Joe Jordan says he thinks Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey will endorse Suttle.
We don't think so.
We think there was a decent chance that Fahey would have endorsed Vokal, with whom he has a decent relationship, had Vokal made it through yesterday.
But with Daub and Suttle pulling through, it's a harder question.
Mike Fahey is not buds with Daub, whom he beat in 2001. Nor is he BFFs with Suttle, who has been a thorn in the side of Fahey at times over the past four years.
So does Fahey dislike Suttle enough to endorse Daub?
Yikes. Hmm. Not likely.
But does Fahey dislike Daub enough to endorse fellow-Democrat Suttle?
Boy, ya gotta think that would take some convincing.
From Ben Nelson? Bob Kerrey? (Rahm Emanuel?)
It will be interesting to see what it takes for Fahey to hold his nose with one hand and shake Suttle's hand with the other.
But we have a feeling it won't happen.
On a semi-related note, is Suttle sporting a urban-camouflage suit in this OWH photo?
If he stands in front of the First National building he would appear to be just a floating head...
