Johanns Shakes Nebraska:

President Bush’s surprise choice of Republican Gov. Mike Johanns as secretary of Agriculture has turned politics upside down in Nebraska. Johanns had long been expected to challenge Sen. Ben Nelson (D.-Neb.) next year. His nomination to Agriculture leaves the GOP without a well-known candidate.

Conservative Rep. Lee Terry (R.-Neb.) told HUMAN EVENTS’ John Gizzi last week he would not run for the Senate seat. “I’ve had lots of calls [about it] but I’ve invested so much in what I’m doing now that it would not make sense to run for the Senate against an incumbent,” said Terry, who now has a seat he has long aimed for on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
