In another of the Unicameral flies, the Nebraska GOP is not wasting any time going after state Senator Steve Lathrop.
You may remember that for a while Lathrop was considered to be the leading Democratic candidate to take on Governor Dave Heineman. Instead Lathrop decided to simply run for re-election in 2010.
Well, the NEGOP isn't going to take that lying down.
Per a post by the Objective Conservative blog, we were notified that they have been dropping door-hangers around Lathrop's southern Douglas County 12th district.
On the right is how it looks (it's Halloween themed on orange paper, so we've done our best to color it...) -- click to enbiggen.
The NEGOP also has a "report card" they are distributing detailing more of Lathrop's votes.
As the Objective Conservative noted, all this would indicate that the Nebraska Republicans have a candidate to take on Lathrop. Who is that candidate?
But seeing as Lathrop was considered to be major enough to run statewide, the GOP has slapped a political target on his back.
This is what happens when they don't have to bother with, say, a Democrat running for Governor...
