More money is pouring into the U.S. Senate race in Nebraska.
Joe Ricketts, the former Omaha entrepreneur, has dumped additional dollars into the race to help Republican Deb Fischer.
Ricketts is funding $200,000 for a television ad in which three Nebraskans — including Speaker of the Legislature Mike Flood — defend Fischer against criticism from Democrat Bob Kerrey. Fischer and Kerrey are running for Sen. Ben Nelson's seat.
In all, Ricketts' super PAC, known as Ending Spending, has spent $690,000 on the race. In the general election alone, Ricketts has spent $420,000 on television advertisements supporting Fischer or opposing Kerrey.
