    1. Is there any polls showing that Bruning has a chance?
    1. I'm skeptical that Kleeb could even beat Bruning in Nebraska in 2008.  I think HRC would have to get about 42-44% for Kleeb to win that matchup, and I think HRC will have trouble doing better than 40%.

    Still a narrow loss to Bruning would be a good thing for Kleeb.  But a bad loss(20+%) to Johanns may end his career.   If there is a real chance for Bruning to be the nominee, Kleeb has a good reason to run.  

    I believe that Bob Kerrey was the only guy who could have won this race.  (And I think he might well have)

    •  No public polling, (0+ / 0-)

      but I tangentially know someone who knows Bruning. Bruning claims the national Party is pressuring him to drop out of the race because (they claim) his polling is terrible.  He claims that his polling shows he is doing great and they just want to avoid embarrassing Johanns. Considering that just ring untrue, and considering Bruning's tenuous grasp on reality, I'm inclined to believe the national party.

      If Bruning wins, Kleeb should absolutely be in the race and would have a good chance.  However, I think that there is a better chance of Kleeb winning the seat than Bruning winning the primary.
