Nebraska U.S. Senate Candidate Don Stenberg, today renewed his request to hold a minimum of six debates prior to the May 15 Primary Election. Says opponent, Jon Bruning, appears hesitant to face voters.
“I am requesting again today, that the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate agree to hold a minimum of six debates, with a minimum of two in each of Nebraska’s congressional districts prior to the May 15 Primary Election.”

On November 16, Stenberg sent letters to Bruning, Deb Fischer, and Pat Flynn requesting they agree on at least six debates.
“Although other Republican opponents have accepted invitations to debate, Jon Bruning appears to be hesitant to face the voters. As of today, Bruning has only agreed to one debate. With only 130 days until the May 15 Primary Election, Nebraska voters are starting to focus on who should replace Ben Nelson in the U.S. Senate. They deserve to hear the candidates’ views on how to fix what’s wrong in Washington and how they would represent Nebraska values in the U.S. Senate, “ Stenberg said.
The Stenberg Campaign has accepted invitations to eight proposed debates and is having discussion regarding others. Debates agreed to by Stenberg are:
Republican Liberty Caucus-Nebraska, Kearney
Lincoln Independent Business Association, Lincoln - LIBA
UNL ASUN & Lincoln Journal Star, Lincoln
Washington County Republican Party, Blair
Nebraska Republican Party, Omaha
Tea Party Patriots, Omaha
Norfolk Daily News, Norfolk
Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom, Omaha
