Nebraska Democrats have named their third choice to compete against the Democrat whose name will appear on the ballot in November. Omaha activist and professor Preston Love Jr. launched a write-in campaign Thursday against Omaha cupcake baker Chris Janicek.  Janicek won the Democratic primary in May but party leaders disavowed him after he sent lewd texts about a campaign staffer. Janicek pledged to stay in the race last week despite all the negative publicity. Nebraska Democratic Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb said Love offers voters a better alternative than either Janicek or incumbent Republican Sen. Ben Sasse.
