“If I were a United States Senator today, I would vote for Senator Ron Johnson in the race for Vice Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference,”
“Our nation would be well served if more conservatives were in leadership positions in the U.S. Senate. We need more national leaders who are strongly committed to cutting federal spending, reducing the federal regulatory burden, repealing Nelson-Obamacare, developing our domestic energy resources, and securing our borders,” Stenberg said.
Mr. Stenberg served as Nebraska Attorney General from 1990-2002 and was elected Nebraska State Treasurer in 2010 with 73 percent of the vote. Stenberg was the Republican U.S. Senate nominee in 2000 and although polls showed him starting behind Senator Ben Nelson by more than 30 percentage points, he turned it into the closest U.S. Senate race in Nebraska history. Today, two published polls show Stenberg with a 4 to 6 percent lead over Senator Nelson, even though at the time the polls were taken he was not yet a candidate.
