A new a six-figure buy from Club for Growth Action hits back at former Nebraska Treasurer Shane Osborn’s (R) attacks on Midland University President Ben Sasse (R). The ad calls Osborn’s recent ads “false” and bad for the party. It also attacks Osborn’s record as state treasurer, saying Nebraska’s Republican auditor found “mismanagement, waste, and unreasonable spending” during his tenure. The spot will begin running statewide Tuesday on broadcast and cable channels.
Meanwhile Osborn is up with a new video on his campaign site touting his plan for American energy independence. The proposal calls for building the Keystone XL Pipeline and allowing states to regulate fracking and expand offshore drilling.
