GOP Senate Candidates Share Similar Views
GERING (AP) - Little distinguished the four Republican candidates seeking Nebraska's open U.S. Senate seat in the first debate sponsored by the Nebraska Republican Party. The debate Wednesday night in western Nebraska's Gering covered such topics as farm policy, immigration and federal tax and health care reform. Participating were Omaha banker Sid Dinsdale, Omaha attorney Bart McLeay, former State Treasurer Shane Osborne and Midland University President Ben Sasse. All touted their conservative stances, labeling President Obama's health care overhaul law deeply flawed and calling for measures to stanch federal government spending.
