Not dead by a long shot. These House and Senate races are soooooooo important!
In Tuesday’s Republican primary, state Sen. Deb Fischer rode a wave of discontent with the GOP establishment to best Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, the preferred candidate of Washington, D.C.-based Republicans, and Treasurer Don Stenberg in a race that drew national attention from outside groups in its final, unpredictable weeks.

The outcome underscored years-old divisions within the GOP, and set the stage for a competitive general election race that could determine the balance of power in the U.S. Senate.

Sarah Who?
The Republican establishment spent nearly $3 million to support state attorney general Jon Bruning. The Washington conservative establishment spent nearly $3 million to prop up their candidate, Don Stenberg, who never got traction despite all of his endorsements. But it took just 135 words (http://www.facebook.com/notes/sarah-palin/deb-fischer-for-nebraska/10150819857308435) from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to propel Fischer to the head of the pack and give her the momentum, buzz, and name identification to capitalize on some of the groundwork she had diligently laid.

Does this mean Harry Reid's 2010 re-election strategy is catching on among Democrats this cycle?

The real battle to see which empty suit will vote for increased debt, the Patriot Act extension, and CISPA? People like Allen West? Yep, those battles make all the difference.:upeyes:
