Hotline Sort: An Upset Brewing in Nebraska?

3) President Obama set a presidential election fundraising record on Thursday at an event hosted by George Clooney and Jeffrey Katzenberg: Nearly $15 million. 2) Democrat Bob Kerrey is voicing support for same-sex marriage, following Obama's endorsement of it earlier this week. Nebraska is a pretty socially conservative state, so Kerrey's decision is politically risky. 1) The Republican Senate race in Nebraska is well worth watching during the final four days. Jon Bruning remains the frontrunner, but not by the comfortable margin he was sporting a couple of months ago. Deb Fischer, long a non-factor in the race, appears to have made up ground and may even be running ahead of Don Stenberg (without concrete independent polling, this is difficult to determine more precisely). She's landed the endorsements of Sarah Palin and Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (this may have more to do with the Fortenberry pushing back against the Club For Growth, which is backing Stenberg) and Bruning hits both Stenberg and FIscher in a new TV ad, which is a clear indication she is gaining ground on the field. We will have more on this race and what it means for the national groups that got involved later today on the blog.
