Wealthy Businessman Boosts Fischer Against Bruning in Nebraska

The Ricketts ad caps a seven-day stretch during which Fischer appeared to be surging past Stenberg, who has received a lot of help from national conservative groups. I wrote on Friday that if Stenberg finishes third, it will be an embarrassment for FreedomWorks, the Club For Growth, and South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint's PAC, all of which are backing Stenberg. The World-Herald has more detail on how much each group has spent:

Three groups -- all supporting Stenberg and opposing Bruning -- have spent $2.1 million in Nebraska on Stenberg's behalf. The anti-tax group Club for Growth has spent $722,000, the Senate Conservatives Fund has spent $1.4 million and FreedomWorks for America has spent $70,000.
