#1 Sasse wins GOP Senate primary in Nebraska05-14-2014, 11:36 AMTea Party-backed candidate Sasse wins GOP Senate primary in Nebraska
Tea Party favorite Ben Sasse won the Republican nomination for an open Senate seat in Nebraska Tuesday night, after a heated and costly primary battle that drew heavy national attention.
Sasse, a university president, was able to hold off former state treasurer Shane Osborn and dark horse candidate Sid Dinsdale, who had begun to surge in recent weeks. Sasse grabbed 49 percent of the vote with Dinsdale finishing second and Osborn finishing third, according to preliminary returns
Osborn had the backing of allies of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and ran an aggressive campaign. Further scrambling the race, Pinnacle Bank President Dinsdale had sought to capitalize on the Sasse-Osborn fight and had climbed in the polls.

As in other races during 2010 when a Tea Party candidate wins the republican primary, the republican establishment often helps the democrat win in the general.
We'll see if that trend continues.".............Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Drudge, National Review spur Sasse win
The Drudge Report and National Review both deserve a share of the credit for Republican Ben Sasse’s victory in Tuesday’s Nebraska Senate primary.
Sasse, a Yale history PhD and official in George W. Bush’s Department of Health and Human Services, was basically unknown when he got into the race last year. His first internal poll showed him trailing former state Treasurer Shane Osborn 40 percent to 3 percent....."Lu looks like she could eat corn on the cob through a picket fence"--Big Dog
