NE Gov's race

A friend asked me what I thought about the race for NE governor. There are 3 Republican candidates, including the current gov, Dave Heineman, and 3rd District Rep. Tom Osbourne. The other is Omaha area businessman Dave Nabity. I understand there is a Democratic candidate as well, but am not aware of his name today.

Osbourne, due his background as Husker FB coach, was thought to be pertty unstoppable early on, but the incumbent appears to have gained traction due to his policies. I don't think Nabity has much chance, but I've met the gentleman at a Heritage Foundation event in Omaha and he seemed pleasant. More to come on this later.
