Don Stenberg on Principles & Values

Republican Senate challenger (NE)


Our country's going in the wrong direction

All called for a reduction in federal spending and national debt, the repeal of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law and declared tough stances on illegal immigration.

"Our country's going in the wrong direction," Stenberg said in his opening remarks. "We desperately need new leadership in Washington to restore America."

Most campaign funds come from South Carolina PAC

A debate panelist asked each candidate to describe what weaknesses of the other candidates could be exploited by the Kerrey campaign during the general election campaign.

Stenberg reiterated criticisms he's aimed at Bruning throughout the campaign: That Bruning has become a multimillionaire while serving in public office and that in 2007, Bruning attempted to waive a $1 million settlement with Lincoln-based student loan company Nelnet.

In response, Bruning declared he would not "throw mud" at his opponents, then said "South Carolina has two senators ... they don't need a third," implying that Stenberg would be beholden to South Carolina's Sen. Jim DeMint, a tea party leader who has endorsed Stenberg. The bulk of Stenberg's fundraising for his Senate campaign has come from the Senate Conservatives Fund, a political action committee run by DeMint.
