Contrary to the claim above, CGI Group, a Canadian company, built the website, NOT United Health Group.

I understand how Tea Partiers think it's great to primary safe GOP incumbents, but how in hell do they think they should just be awarded the GOP slot in an open seat?

There are 5 Republicans running for that seat.
The last poll I can find is a internal poll provided by Nebraska state Treasurer Shane Osborn from Oct 27-28.  It shows Osborn, http://hoh.rollcall.com/nebraska-senate-contender-one-of-people-magazines-2001-50-most-beautiful/ , with 39 percent.

Midland University President Ben Sasse, a Tea Party favorite who last week received the endorsement of the Senate Conservatives Fund, ties banker Sid Dinsdale with 7 percent support. Attorney Bart McLeay takes 1 percent support.

Osborn takes an early lead because he has significant name recognition in the state, with 83 percent of GOP primary voters saying they've heard of him, and a majority, 55 percent, having a favorable impression of him.

This is just the kind of ploy the GOPe uses.  They take a well known and respected candidate and prop him up against pure conservatives of principle.  Men and women willing to ignore reality when reality is wrong.

Candidates release internal polls to direct the flow of money to themselves.  In fact the release by Osborn was in response to Sasse's first quarter fundraising $800,000. Wow!!!  Someone's got a suger daddy.

SCF gave him $118,000 1st quarter. In the last paragraph you find this nugget..."Yet Sasse, whose contributions were nearly all large-dollar in that last report"


Primary is May 13

We'll know in a few days when the next quarter fundraising totals come in how the outsider candidate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6TzKs2FRp4 and former Asst US Secretary of Health and Human Services under President George W. Bush Ben Sasse is doing.  Judging from the whining it must not be good.

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
