A little pre-election contest. The photo below was taken recently. Guess whose yard this is, featuring the "Obama/Biden" and "Obama/Kaine" signs.
Special prize to the first entrant to submit the correct answer!
“We are both troubled by the rhetoric and heightened tensions surrounding the upcoming NEGOP Convention this Saturday in Grand Island.
There is something called “The Nebraska Way.” It’s honesty. Being cordial and neighborly. Practicing The Golden Rule. And, when differences occur, shaking hands and agreeing to disagree in a respectful way.
It’s important to us that the NEGOP Convention be conducted “The Nebraska Way.” For that reason we met to discuss ways in which we could more accurately reflect the cordiality and cooperation that actually exists between our two groups and express our mutual desire for the NEGOP Convention be conducted in an orderly and positive fashion.
To accomplish this, we pledge the following:
• The NEGOP and RLCNE will not engage in nor encourage and will actively discourage any kind of dilatory or disruptive tactics that could interfere with the mutual goal of an orderly and efficient convention.
• Based upon assurances provided by the RLCNE, the NEGOP has reconsidered and withdrawn its plan to hire additional security officers for the NEGOP Convention.
• The RLCNE will discourage those wishing to attend the NEGOP Convention for the purpose of intimidation, agitation or monitoring from attending.
• At the conclusion of the NEGOP convention, we will work together to accomplish the overarching goal we share: defeating Barack Obama in November.”
"An articulate, focused, and driven National Committeeman is very important to Nebraska. I have known Mark Fahleson since he graduated from law school. He has the background, education, drive, and ability to serve Nebraska and our nation as Committeeman. He is the most highly qualified and motivated person I know to be Republican National Committeeman for Nebraska. I am honored to join Senator Johanns, Governor Heineman, and others in endorsing Mark Fahleson." The Honorable Duane Acklie
"During his term as Chairman of the Nebraska Republican Party, Mark Fahleson has always made it a point to reach out and support College Republicans. He has worked tirelessly to help CR and other youth organizations develop leaders, ensuring effective conservative leadership for our state for years to come. Mark's vision, proven record, and commitment to conservative principles will make him a valuable asset to both Nebraska and the Republican National Committee. I am honored to support him in his effort to become Nebraska's Republican National Committeeman." Andrew LaGrone, Chair, Nebraska College Republicans
“For over 25 years Mark Fahleson has labored on behalf of our Republican Party, doing the “blocking and tackling” necessary to achieve victory for our candidates and conservative principles. Mark has been an outstanding Nebraska Republican Party Chair, guiding our party through the historic 2010 elections and leading the effort to create an open U.S. Senate seat in 2012. Mark’s service on the local, state and national level is appreciated, and he understands what it takes to be a successful member of the Republican National Committee. I wholeheartedly support Mark Fahleson in his bid to become our Republican National Committeeman.” Governor Dave Heineman
