And Now for The Nebraska Republicans
There may be some of you who think we've been a little less than balanced in our thoughts and coverage about those poor Nebraska Democrats and their current state. In order to be fair we think that the Nebraska Republican Party and its convention have an interesting situation to face at their upcoming state convention with Keynote Speaker Scott Brown.
Seems that while Nebraska Senators Judas Ben Nelson and Mike Johanns are opposing the Financial Overall bill that Scott Brown is supporting it! According to CQ Miday Update:
"Sen. Scott P. Brown, R-Mass., indicated Monday that he expects to support a House-passed conference agreement on overhauling the financial regulatory system, bringing Democratic leaders a step closer to the supermajority they need to get the measure to the president's desk."
He is certainly a much more relevant speaker that George McGovern, but as we've noted in our prior posts, he isn't exactly a guy that is in sync with most Nebraska Republicans. Glad we got him on our side (so to speak) but for most Nebraska Republicans he is just another Doug Bereuter.
