The 2012 race Starts in Nebraska

The newly re-elected State Attorney General, Jon Bruning, announced his plans to challenge Ben Nelson for the Senate in 2012. I can’t say I’m that familiar with the political landscape in Nebraska, but he seems likely to be a strong challenger. With Ben Nelson having been central in pushing the health care bill over the line in the Senate, he’s going to be very vulnerable. Bruning joined the group of states challenging the constitutionality of the individual mandate, which will likely keep both him and the health care bill in the news.

If you are in this region of the country, my advice is to keep “Cornhusker Kickback” off your list of election drinking games. It will be the end of your liver.
