2012 is HERE

Tired of all the political commercials yet? Mike Johanns this and Ben Nelson that.

Well one man says BRING IT ON BABY!

Yes, Pat Flynn has filed paperwork with the FEC for Ben Nelson's 2012 Senate seat!

According to CQ Politics, Flyyn attributes much of his loss in the 2008 primary against Mike Johanns to a "late start."

Well no more!

Flynn will start his 2012 campaign NOW in order to "build an organization that can win."

Sure Flynn got just 22% against Johanns. And maybe the Schuyler investment adviser started out the 2008 effort focusing on the wrong subjects. And maybe Flynn could start at a lower office or another area of government before trying to jump directly to the major leagues of the U.S. Senate.

But you know what he's got? Gumption, that's what.

That and a REALLY big head start...

Nebraska voters don't like egos but they have a habit of electing nuts. Flynn seems to fall into the catagory of egotist.

Nebraska Republicans already have candidates lining up for 2012 and the Nebraska Democrats still can't find candidates for 2010 even though the filing deadline is just a few months away. Governor? Attorney General? Treasurer? Auditor? 1st Congressional District? Simply amazing.

I got to know Pat Flynn a little during the last election cycle and I can assure you he is neither a "nut" or an egotist.

He is a bright and articulate guy with more common sense than most of the rest of the political class combined, with a welcome measure of humility.

I dunno if Pat can win, but if he doesn't it won't be from lack of effort, energy and enthusiasm.

Go Pat!

Wooderson! Back on the scene!

Google "Pat Flynn Nebraska" and check out his announcement speech from 2007. He can barely remember his own name.

Reminds me of a certain supposed candidate for NE second district republican primary...sad sack or something.

Dayton Headlee said...

Flynn also filed for his rematch against Johanns in 2014. And the 2018 rematch against who ever easily beats him in 2012.
