RINO alert: Nebraska Senate hopeful Bob Kerrey tonight is preparing for a “major” announcement tomorrow, which is believed to be an endorsement by former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel. Kerrey is running against Republican Deb Fischer in a tight race.
Getting very interesting in NE-SEN: Poll shows race within 3, Crossroads GPS goes up w/ last minute $420K buy, Hagel to endorse Kerrey.

Kerrey lands a whopper of an endorsement. Former Republican U.S. Sen. Chuck Hagel is set to back his fellow Vietnam veteran tomorrow.

I don't think people appreciate how big a deal the Chuck Hagel endorsement of Kerrey is. Hagel was once *king* of the Nebraska GOP.

Really cool that Chuck Hagel is endorsing Bob Kerrey. Country over party.

For a supposedly bipartisan move, some observers are seeing Hagel as the one doing all of the aisle-crossing.
Former NE Senator Chuck "Mr Sunday Morning" Hagel has endorsed Bob Kerrey in the senate race. What a turncoat.

Why is Hagel backing Kerrey a surprise? Hagel's barely a Republican anymore and they're fellow Vietnam vets. http://t.co/CuZ0HRrT

If a Kerrey win secures Harry Reid’s seat as Majority Leader, can we expect some bipartisanship from Nevada? Not likely.
American Crossroads makes ad buy, now McCain is coming to Nebraska. #NESEN is getting crazy. Remember kids vote for Kerrey = vote for Reid
