More competition? Hal Daub is testing the waters in Nebraska

Sensing that something is happening in Nebraska politics, former City of Omaha Mayor Hal Daub continues to travel the state and "listen to the people."

The Hal Daub running for Senate record -

1. failed to gain the GOP nomination for Senate in 1988.

2. won the party's Senate nomination in 1990. He lost the general election to Democratic incumbent J. James Exon by a 59%-41% margin.

Nebraska: Republican Hal Daub is making the rounds as he considers a Senate race. I don't know how well it's going. He stopped in Columbus, Nebraska's tenth most populous city (between 21,000 and 22,000 residents), for a two-hour issue discussion (we're not talking a 20-minute grip-and-grin) and only got "about 35" people to come. It's not quite so early in the process anymore. Perhaps his crowds should be bigger than three dozen at this point.
