Did Jon Bruning Vote For Kerrey?by Kyle Michaelis
Back in 1993, you may recall, Jon Bruning was a young liberal law student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In 1996, he ran for legislature as a die-hard conservative. Quite the evolution in such a short time, and quite typical of Bruning's ruthless ambition.
In between, there was an election, and Bruning - as the civic-minded person he no doubt must be, to have such an interest in public service - voted. And it's not hard to imagine, given Bruning's positions at the time and Kerrey's 55% of the vote, that Jon Bruning voted for Bob Kerrey the last time that Kerrey ran for office in this state. Will Bruning change his position on Bob Kerrey just to win the Republican nomination? The answers to some questions are not such a mystery.
