Jon Bruning is the Attorney General of the state of Nebraska. He is a RINO, pro-Planned Parenthood candidate who lost in a stunning upset for the Republican nomination for an open U.S. Senate seat in Nebraska in 2012. Jon Bruning's campaign spent $3.5 million, nearly ten times what was spent by the more conservative candidate who defeated him.
Bruning gave Planned Parenthood virtually everything it wanted in failing to fully defend the pro-abortion group's challenge to a state statute, resulting in an award of more than $110,000 in taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood.
- abortion: "I think a woman should have a right to choose," Bruning declared.
- forcing the Boy Scouts to accept homosexuals: "I believe homosexuals ... ought to be able to be Boy Scout leaders ....," Bruning said.
- gun control: "I believe in gun control. ... Many types of handguns and ammunition, however, need to be regulated," Bruning insisted.
Leaders of the conservative movement were unanimous in opposing Bruning's nomination.
