A possible challenger to Adrian Smith for Nebraska's Third District congressional seat?

The Omaha World Herald reports that Col. Tom Brewer is expected to announce next week his intentions to run on the GOP ticket.

Brewer is a native of Murdock, which is in the state's 1st district; but according to the World Herald report, is in the process of moving to Gordon in northwest Nebraska.

On his Facebook page, Brewer said he would have more to say next week. Brewer's military service stretches back nearly 36 years; most recently with multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan.

He has been awarded a purple heart, a bronze star, and a Joint Service Commendation Medal.
