We did not abandon Chuck Hagel. He abandoned us.

It is never an enjoyable thing to take on your own team. It is never fun to turn your back on someone you have previously embraced and supported. But when that former friend keeps rejecting you, insulting you, and putting his personal gain ahead of that of both the country and its citizens, it's time to face reality and admit you are not abandoning your friend. Your friend has abandoned you.
Now is that time with Chuck Hagel. Mr. Hagel has suggested the President of the United States, the leader of his party, should be impeached. Mr. Hagel has ignored what the troops are saying and instead has run to the nearest microphone to denounce the war. Mr. Hagel has done what he could to help himself, not the party, the people, nor the country.
It's time for the Republican Party to abandon Mr. Hagel as Mr. Hagel has abandoned the Republican Party. It is time for the Republican Party to get behind Jon Bruning.
Jon Bruning is a solid conservative, a loyal Republican, and good man. In 2002, he was elected as the youngest Attorney General in Nebraska history and was unopposed in his 2006 re-election bid. Prior to becoming Nebraska's AG, Bruning served for six years in Nebraska's legislature. He fought for tax cuts, victims of crime, and families.
Chuck Hagel has abandoned the GOP. It's time to accept that fact and elect Jon Bruning as Nebraska's next United States Senator.
