The main statewide race in contention is for State Treasurer.
(And we'll link to their Facebook pages, since that's what all the cool kids look at...)
State Senator Tony Fulton, former Attorney General Don Stenberg and former State Patrol Superintendent (the top spot) Tom Nesbitt are all vying for that job of jobs.
What's that you say? Well, PLENTY of people would like that gig, that's who!
You know, people like Kay Orr, Dave Heineman and Shane Osborn.
(Are you starting to get the drift?)
Look, it's a statewide office, you have some responsibilities, and you know, maybe...possibly...you can launch to a higher office from there.
Not saying any of these folks plan that, but hey.
It's just sort of funny that these guys talk so little about actual treasurering...
Anyway, watch some 30 second spots (in alpha order):
By the way, the Stenberg camp doesn't like Fulton's spot.
If this were a two man race, Tony Fulton would have a shot.
But as it's a three man competition...well...we just don't see how Stenberg's statewide name recognition can be beat.
It could happen. We're not saying it can't happen.
But we're saying that if it does, it would probably be the upset of the year.
Dive in peoples.
Test Tweet here folks...
Dems, this is what happens when the AG is left unopposed http://bit.ly/adQoj7 (and when you claim $500K that hasn't been delivered...)
A much more detailed plot thickens (via the LJS) on the Mark Lakers NADC report: http://bit.ly/94ER7h
