Exhibit 7.11

For Nebraskans

Scott Kleeb has decided to run for the U.S. Senate. He faces a tough primary against a guy who was a Republican until a month ago (Nebraska Democrats – Catch the Fever!) and then an even tougher election against former governor and current rubber stamp Mike Johanns.

You may remember Scott for almost beating Adrian Smith in Nebraska’s 3rd district (one of the most conservative in the country) last election, and he’s pretty much everything this state needs in a senator. With a master’s degree in International Relations and a Ph.D. in History with a focus in Agricultural Economics (all from Yale), Kleeb is the rare politician capable of understanding the problems facing Nebraskans and Americans on a level deeper than their party’s bullet points.

I don’t know, I could say more but this should be enough: He’s clearly the smartest, most principled candidate running. Nebraska can keep electing hacks and pretending our best aren’t leaving the state, or we can support one of the few who came back to build something better than what the Mike Johanns of the world have proven capable of. I think it’s worth supporting. So check out his website, volunteer, or write a check.

Hell, I’d vote for that chin alone.
