Former Nebraska Congressman Brad Ashford is planning to launch a write-in bid for the U.S. Senate. Ashford says he will move forward with the campaign if current Democratic Senate nominee Chris Janicek does not withdraw from the race. Janicek, who has faced sexual harassment allegations, takes on incumbent Republican Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse in the November general election. Sasse and Janicek will hold a debate Friday, September 4th at 7:00 p.m. The debate will be hosted by N-E-T Nebraska.
