Nebraska: Kleeb, Raimondo to Slug It Out in Senate Primary

As of this week, the heavily Republican Cornhusker State has two more Senate candidates than it did last week — and they’re running as Democrats.

Businessman Tony Raimondo, rebuffed by the Republican Party in favor of former Gov. Mike Johanns, announced his candidacy Monday, as did 2006 3rd district Democratic nominee Scott Kleeb.

The winner of the the May 13 Democratic primary should face Johanns in November. Johanns is facing minimal competition in the GOP primary.

The winner of the general election will fill the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Chuck Hagel (R).
