blue jeans at the big debate. The farmers at the State Fair weren't fooled. Now Democrat Dave Hahn is dissing State Senator for Life Ernie Chambers. For those readers unfamiliar with Senator Chambers, he represents many of the state's black folks, and is not only a man of color himself, but is also, as the Wiki so charitably puts it, colorful.
Just when the old feeder thought Dave's poll numbers could hardly get any worse, he now risks alienating Nebraska's black voters. Democrats in our state have always assumed that the black vote was automatically in their pocket. If Dave can change this, he won't have a constituency at all.
Do I see a Heineman landslide coming?
