Dirty little secret: GOP’s Ashford attack hits state’s top Republican

Joe Jordan | Nebraska Watchdog

There’s a good chance you’ve seen a Republican TV ad attacking Democrat Brad Ashford, who’s running against GOP Congressman Lee Terry, as a tax and spend liberal.

But buried in the commercial’s fine print is a dirty little secret: the GOP could just as easily be attacking Nebraska’s top Republican: Gov. Dave Heineman.

KFAB (see video below) asked Nebraska Watchdog’s Joe Jordan to explain.
