Scott Kleeb

From dKosopedia

Scott Kleeb was the Democratic candidate for the Nebraska's 3rd congressional district (NE-03), see Nebraska U.S. House election, 2006. He lost that open seat race to Adrian Smith. In 2004, he married Jane Fleming, the former Executive Director of the Young Democrats of America.

From Ryan Anderson's dKos diary:

Kleeb is a fourth-generation Nebraskan who was born on a military base in Turkey and attended high school in Italy (where he was valedvictorian of his class and an MVP for both the wrestling and soccer teams). Upon returning to the states, he became a professional ranch hand in Western Nebraska and Eastern Colorado. He recieved a degree in history and political science from the University of Colorado before recieving a Masters in International Relations from Yale. For his recent doctoral dissertation, he focused heavily on the history American cattle ranching.


Kleeb is "an agreesive campaigner who's canvassing this massive district (roughly 70% of Nebraska's total area) one county at a time. When he's not working the land in Dunning, he's on the road, and he's been reaching out to activists at home, online (quickly amassing an online newsletter with over 2,000 subscribers), and out of state (word is he created quite the buzz when he gave a presentation to the Democratic National Commitee Meeting in Phoenix last year , saying "You folks voted for a 50-state strategy. Well, I am the 50-state strategy.")

In addition, he is pulling help from some wonderful surrogates. Former Governor/Senator/9-11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey has signed on as chair of his campaign finance committee, stating: "I am deeply impressed with Scott's commitment to thinking deeply about the issues facing Central and Western Nebraska. He envisions a Nebraska with jobs and people flowing in instead of out. If that vision is to be realized, we need leaders with the energy and intelligence to promote fresh ideas. And Scott is such a leader."

And Nebraska legend Ted Sorenson -former speechwriter and presidential aide to JFK- has joined Scott on the campaign trail, stating "When I think of Nebraska, I think of Kennedy, Kerrey and Kleeb." [1]
