Well, we already have proof that a douchebag billionaire can get elected here, soo there's no reason to think this guy can't...
Why is a UNL grad who lived on a farm and created his own ag company a douche? Just since he's a R?

Also just read this-Knowing the importance of an education and the value of supporting the academic development of America’s future leaders, Charles invests in the education of students pursuing a college degree through the Charles W. Herbster Foundation. In addition, Charles provides financial support to the Angus Foundation, which includes programs dedicated to education, youth, and research in the Angus breed and the agricultural industry. Charles has donated more than $1 million to these important foundations and continues to lend his support to America’s youth.

Does he need to champion donating other people's money rather than donating his own money to be a "good" guy?

Anyone who thinks they can ride trumps coat tails into office is a douchebag in my book. I have a family foundation and give to various causes, that doesn't automatically make me a good person who should be Governor. If I've learned anything in my professional career's, it's that rich people can be unbelievably stupid.

He was an advisor for the U.S. government on agriculture. I don't think you quite get the concept of how the federal government works. He wasn't the spin doctor of the campaign or something like that.

Is the idea that we get crappy advice for agriculture by someone from the movie Idiocracy?

Lol, I worked in the Federal Government, so I think I have an idea of how it works. Dude gave millions to trump so he got an appointable advisory position. Same thing has happened under every President in our lifetimes.

Except he was an advisor before donating. The timeline is wrong there. Easy to find.
Meh, semantics. I don't think it's really worth arguing over, he already lost a bid for Governor once, and history tends to repeat itself. There's been pretty decent rumblings that Heineman is going to run again.

He might run again you never know. Even though if you don't agree with this guy's politics and won't vote for him as his politics don't align with yours does that make him a douche? I didn't vote for Bob Kerrey, but I didn't consider him a douche.

That discussion is just going to lead to more useless back and forth. So I plead the 5th, I have work to do.

Well I mean if he donated to Trump, he should already be considered too stupid to hold office for falling for that bullshit
LOL if you donated to Biden pot meet kettle on him being a "moderate". He is no way close to moderate. Once again hilarious coming from you since you are a "former republican" yeah right. D.C. statehood is being crammed through in the House and nothing to see here right? Even if you hate Trump cramming through extra states for power is extreme radicalism.

Giant douchebag.

Herbster, a Republican who owns a Falls City, Nebraska, ranch and a Kansas City-area business, said on Facebook that he also met Tuesday in Trump’s private residence in his Washington, D.C., hotel with Trump’s sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, and other campaign advisers. They discussed how to pressure more members of Congress to object to the Electoral College results that made Joe Biden the winner.

Late on paying taxes so his employees could get paid seems very noble to me. And he still paid his taxes and probably a penalty too. Nothing to see here
The argument this and other articles are pointing out is that he had money to give millions in political donations in many of the years he claims to have paid employee's before taxes. So Herbster's excuse doesn't add up.

He just chose to be a shitty political "king maker" instead of pay his taxes. $2M donation to Beau McCoy for Gov is a pretty stupid bet to make going up against the Ricketts family. What an idiot.

I hate to break it to you pal, but EVERY Democrat standing on that stage debating during EVERY election is a Millionaire (maybe not a Billionaire, but none of them are middle-class). If you want to make it about class, you'll vote "none of the above".

He is a douche since he supports Trump.

Nothing more about him needs to be known or discussed.

Which is why I said Billionaire, not Millionaire, pal.
So do you have proof that a douchebag billionaire can get elected here, but a millionaire can't? What's your point, other than wanting to call the Governor of the great state of Nebraska a douchebag?

When did I say a douchebag millionaire can't get elected?

You're literally making up a reason to try and start an argument. Step away from the keyboard and do something productive with your life.

I'm not saying the man is a "douche", but the GOP is turning into haven for every crazy douche in the Country. Nebraska would elect a meth head if he ran on the GOP ticket.

Well, put up someone better than trump and all of a sudden I won’t be a commie anymore.
Trump put money in millions of peoples pockets and took on the communist demoRat party and its Pravda while you RINO’s put your head between your legs and prayed for them to be nice to you just like the losers MCCain, Romney and Bush!

If you worked in the Federal Government since W Bush left office then your "wisdom" is lower than snake piss IMO. BTW what was done to President Donald J Trump by his opponents and their media compliance was not normal or acceptable.

Well done in fact, over open fire if possible. Have you discovered The Constitution of the United States of America? It can be simply summed up by liberties of American citizens against government tyranny against Her people. Seriously, when was the last time Democrats represented any one that was not willing to become submissive to socialist agenda? Former Sen Ben Nelson's demise as a great representative for Nebraska, is the clearest example. Democrats broke him against his and his constituencies beliefs. Democrats, socialism, communism and wokeness will eventually end even our freedom of the RSS. Make no mistake about it.

Oh please. If the GOP continue down their current path. They should be called the American Taliban. Donald Trump was nothing more than a wanna be dictator and I'll make the assumption that you fully supported his administration. While I'm not what I would consider a "progressive", I do believe that the Constitution means more to the Dems than whatever the GOP is nowadays.

Ignorance of truth is bliss to the uninformed. They therefore can always claim everyone else believes them.
