Republican Senate candidates attend first debate
Republican U.S. Senate candidates laid it all out on the table Saturday morning for the first Republican senate debate for the 2012 election cycle.
The debate was held in Kearney by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Nebraska.
Four of the five candidates attended Saturday's debate. Noticably absent, Attorney General Jon Bruning.
Some of the main issues discussed today spending and the U.S. debt.
Candidate Pat Flynn says this race is all about leadership and that the majority of America is more conservative than not.
"Unfortunately, we keep going further and further to the left, whether Republicans or Democrats that are in power, so what I'm saying is the only way we're going to get through this is if we have some phenomenal leadership and the grace of God," said Flynn.
As for the Democrats, University of Nebraska regent Chuck Hassebrook and Omaha business owner Steven Lustgarten have both announced their run for the open Democratic seat.
