Ben Sasse: Great coverage from yesterday’s rally in North Platte. We are grateful for the 1,000 Nebraskans who traveled from across the state to join us at Scout’s Rest Ranch.
Jayme Smith, cosmetologist for Studio 54, and Sarah Palin, former vice-presidential candidate, stand outside La Quinta Inn and Suites on Friday.
Smith, cosmetologist for Studio 54, had the honor to be recruited to style Palin’s hair.
“I was a little nervous but more excited,” Smith said. “I had researched her past hair styles, but she kind of told me what she was looking for. She was awesome. A real nice lady. She autographed my product bag.”
Smith was asked on April 17 if she would do the job. She was recommended by Barb Fear, manager of La Quinta Inn and Suites, where Palin was staying.
“I was pretty ecstatic,” Smith said of the request.
She went to the hotel so Palin wouldn’t have to be in the salon. The styling process took about an hour, during which time Palin practiced her speech and asked questions about Nebraska.
“She thought it was neat that Kool-Aid got its start here,” Smith said. “And we talked about beef. Steak is a big thing in Alaska. They eat a lot of caribou.”
Smith is excited to have the story to pass on to her kids and grandkids someday.
“The whole thing was very fun,” Smith said. “I’m glad I got to do it.” Omaha.com

April 18th Sarah Palin announces Rally
: Looking forward to joining with friends Senator Mike Lee and Governor Kay Orr next week in Nebraska to support conservative U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse. I am so glad Ben chose to hold this event in the heart of the heartland — North Platte, NE — at Scout’s Rest on the property of Buffalo Bill’s Ranch. This is the same venue Governor Orr chose to host President Reagan at in 1987. At this historic heartland venue we will rally for Ben on Friday and get the message out that Ben Sasse is the clear conservative choice in Nebraska’s U.S. Senate race! This event will kick off the final 19 days of this primary campaign. Let’s keep the grassroots momentum going and send Ben to Washington! Hope to see you there.

April 23rd: Ted Cruz confirms joining Sarah, Mike Lee, Kay Orr at Rally for his second Senate endorsee, Ben Sasse:
I’m excited to announce my endorsement of strong conservative Ben Sasse for U.S. Senate in Nebraska. Ben is a fighter and we need him in the U.S. Senate.
He’s exceptionally knowledgeable about Obamacare and is a relentless opponent of the destructive law — Ben will be a powerful ally to repeal it.
In addition, Ben has a strong record of promoting job growth and opportunity. He’ll work closely with conservatives in the Senate to cut reckless spending, limit the size of government and defend the Constitution. Now, more than ever, we need conservative reinforcements in the U.S. Senate like Ben to help stop President Obama’s agenda and restore liberty. Ben will help lead the charge for a full repeal of Obamacare and turn back President Obama’s job-killing regulations. It’s time to end business-as-usual and Make DC Listen. Will you join me, Governor Sarah Palin, Senator Mike Lee and many other conservatives in supporting Ben for U.S. Senate?
For Liberty, Ted Cruz.
*** REMEMBER OUR NEMESIS MITCH McCONNELL HAS TARGETED BEN SASSE***
According to the PPP that appeared in Clear Politics in February, Nebraska Senate primary Ben Sasse was 9 points behind 3/12 (35% to 24%). A recent Rasmussen Poll, however, showed that both Ben and Osborn are leading the Democrat by big margins in the General election, but Ben does better with 52%-27% against the Democrat, while Osborn has a 48%-27% against the Democrat.
