Just hours after the Tea Party Express endorsed Nebraska Attorney General Jim Bruning, Nelson campaign manager Paul Johnson said in a statement, "This endorsement makes perfect sense. Both the Tea Party Express and Mr. Bruning want to cut Medicare, cut Social Security and return to the days when insurance companies could deny health coverage to children with preexisting conditions."
Here’s what Kremer had to say in response:
"Shortly after seeing his conservative opponent endorsed by the Tea Party Express, the Nelson camp went into panic mode, and has already started a campaign of lies and deceptions to try and cling to political office. Nelson's campaign has falsely stated that the Tea Party Express wants to cut Medicare, Social Security and deny insurance coverage to children with pre-existing conditions. That is patently false. We would encourage Nelson to rein-in his campaign spokesman and stick to the truth and not lies and distortions of our record."
