Well, this is interesting. Right?
Former Mayor Mike Fahey is publicly endorsing State Sen. Brad Ashford’s mayoral campaign, a potential blow to Mayor Jim Suttle that could divide local Democrats.
The endorsement was “the result of looking beyond party lines and onto what is best for Omaha,” Fahey, a Democrat and two-term mayor, wrote in a letter this week.
Fahey’s full-throated support for Ashford represents a threat to Suttle’s re-election campaign, although the current mayor’s supporters say the endorsement is hardly a surprise.
“This is not something that’s got us all atwitter over here,” Suttle campaign manager Gary DiSilvestro said. I wonder what local Dems are thinking.
