Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson Announces Retirement, Putting Nebraska Senate Post Up for Grabs in 2012

As we read at US News and World Report,

Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska has announced his retirment after this term
putting the 2012 Senatorial election for this seat in Nebraska up for grabs.

Right now there is no known Democratic candidate and there are three Republicans currently battling for the Republican nomination:
Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg, State Attorney General Jon Bruning, and Deb Fischer, a state senator.

For a lively discussion of Nebraska politics regarding this Senatorial seat, see Leavenworth Street.

Don Stenberg is a fraternity brother of mine, so I am reserving comment for now because I am of course biased on that basis.

It should in any case be quite a lively election and it will be interesting to see who the Democrats will run.
