DeMint PAC Drops Six Figures in Nebraska to Help Underdog Stenberg


Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) speaks at the 'Values Voter Summit' on September 17, 2010 in Washington, DC.(Chet Susslin)

"I stand in awe of the courage of the signers of the Declaration of Independence," says Stenberg in the ad. "Despite the enormous risks, their love of freedom was greater than any fear they must have felt." "Lifelong conservative leader Don Stenberg has shown the same love of freedom," says the ad's narrator. "Lifelong" is an indirect jab at Bruning, who whose views as a law student were notably more liberal. "Cutting spending, fighting crime, defending the unborn. Don Stenberg has the courage we need now in the U.S. Senate." The GOP field is unsettled in the wake of Nelson's retirement announcement last week: Rep. Jeff Fortenberry and Gov. Dave Heinemann have not ruled out candidacies. With Nelson out of the running, and no clear Democrat up to the challenge of filling his shoes, the winner of the Republican primary will very likely be the next senator from Nebraska.
