NE-Sen: Johanns In

Former Governor and Current Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns has jumped into the race for US Senate in Nebraska.

Johanns is extremely popular in Nebraska. His only weaknesses are his connection to the Bush administration (which may or may not be a real weakness in his state,) and the fact that he's facing two other big named Republicans, Attorney General Joe Bruning and former Omaha Mayor and Congressman Hal Daub in the primary.

If Bob Kerrey jumps into this race, it will be a top tier race, perhaps the closest race next year. Still, Kerrey's not in and until I see polls, I'm keeping this at Slight Lean Republican
