U.S. Senate hopefuls Bob Kerrey and Deb Fischer tangled over immigration, Medicare spending and the Keystone XL pipeline in their first face-to-face campaign debate at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island Saturday afternoon.

TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: fischer; kerrey; nebraska; senate
Kerrey said he would "challenge" Harry Reid and "move to the middle". During the debate, Kerrey's attempts to body-blow Fischer's campaign were woefully inept. Tweets from the audience observed Kerrey's looks/demeanor were that of a "grumpy old man".

Fischer proclaimed her experience and conservative credentials in the state unicameral. Kerrey proclaimed his ability to build consensus in the Senate.

Best quote: Bob Kerrey claiming he wasn't a "career politician" which drew jeers from the heavily conservative crowd.

This will be their only debate during the campaign.

Consensus: This debate will not move the polls much (if at all). Kerrey needed a "Akin like" mistake from Fischer and he didn't get it.

Bob Kerrey is an old man and he has always been a homely one to boot...
and we all become a bit grumpy as we age, but it is time for younger, more youthful people to get in office...and by dang they will stay until they are...OLD AND GRUMPY!!!!

"Kerrey said he would "challenge" Harry Reid and "move to the middle"."

Given that Bob is well to Dingy Harry's left (Kerrey retired with a 92% lifetime liberal rating when Reid's was just 79% in 2000), that's quite a dubious claim.

The first question was “Luke vs. Han? Who would you rather have saving the universe?”

I’m sorry, that’s the “Carrie Fisher” debate. Never mind.

There has to be something wrong with peoples’ brains to be democrats. Kerry, lost a leg in Viet Nam, worked to stop military votes from being counted in Florida in 2000.

I heard Kerrey is going around the state pimping for gay marriage.

So I’m dubious about what he means by “move to the middle”. Lucky Pierre in the middle of Harry and Baraq?

This clown must have a serious love of power to be wasting his time with this comeback attempt.

“Kerry, lost a leg in Viet Nam,”
Kerrey won the Congressional Medal of Honor. He is due respect, such as spelling his name correctly. That being said, and all due respect to Mr. Kerrey, he was wrong to try to suppress the military vote in Florida.
