Hagel gets campaign boost from Sen. Lott
f f — ----- KTalrnn . 1 J .1

OMAHA — Senate Majority
Leader TVent Lott said Nebraska’s open
Senate seat is one of the three most
important races for the GOP’s bid to
keep its majority in Congress.
“If we’re to hold our majority or
pick up a few seats, Nebraska is where
it’s got to happen,” Lott said.
Lott was campaigning for Repub
lican Chuck Hagel in Omaha, Sidney
and Norfolk Wednesday. The Missis
sippi Republican is the ninth U.S. sena
tor to appear for Hagel’s campaign.

Senate Majority Leader
In many races across the nation, the
poll numbers are tight but leaning to
ward the GOP, Lott said.
With a little less than two weeks
until the election, Lott’s appearance
cranes at a time when polls released
by the campaigns are at odds with each
other. Democratic Gov. Ben Nelson
claims a 13-point lead; Hagel’s camp
says Nelson leads by only one point.
Hagel said the endorsements show
two things about his campaign: He is
credible, and he shares a fundamental
focus with the Republican party—in

campaign for him, is out of step with
his party, Hagel said. He said Nelson
doesn’t believe in his party’s philoso
“What else can he do but do what
he’s doing by not bringing anyone in?”
Hagel said. “I am not ashamed of my
party. I don’t run from my party.”
By using big names like Lott, the
Hagel campaign aims to get out the
message that Hagel can continue the
progress of the Republican Congress.
Hagel has two weeks to do that, and
luring voters to the polls, and party
organization will be crucial to that ef
fort, he said.
“TV and radio and polls are inter
esting,” he said, “but you have to get
out your vote.”

FREMONT (AP) — A man
helping to hunt down a runaway
rodeo bull accidentally shot himself.
An area farmer Wednesday killed
the bull, which had been on the
loose for three days.
John Lovitt, 54, of Ames died
in an accidental shooting Monday
night while hunting for one of two
bulls that escaped Saturday night
from a Fremont rodeo, Dean
Skokan, Dodge County attorney,
said. Sheriff Dan Weddle said Lovitt
was one of the organizers of the ro
Rodeo workers caught one of
the bulls Sunday night, but did not
find the other.
A farmer killed the second bull
at 1 a.m. Wednesday, Skokan said.
The bull apparently was shot near
Ames, about six miles west of Fre
mont in east-central Nebraska.
Lovitt was looking for the bull
in a farm field northwest of Fremont
when his shotgun accidentally went
off as he entered his vehicle, Skokan
said. Autopsy results showed no
sign that Lovitt had been in contact
with the bull.
Residents in nearby Fremont
were not told about the loose bull.
City Administrator Jack Sutton said
the bull was not considered a dan
ger to them because the animal was
heading away from the eastern Ne
braska community. Fremont, ap
proximately 30 miles west of
Omaha, has a population of about
“The initial reports were that the
bulls were near die edge of town,
but all the sightings after that were
four to five miles west of Fremont,
so we weren’t concerned,” Sutton
said. “But then again, you don’t
know which direction those critters
will be going.”
