    Nelson- I think saw the writting on the wall, there weren't going to be enough Nebraskans willing ticket split for him anymore

    Hollings- he had served quite a many terms, I don't think Demint scared him as so much as he had done his fair share and was ready to retire

    Johnston - wait was he really losing to duke?

    Metzenbaum - I think he was just old and ready to throw in the towel

    Wirth- he had grown tired of the senate, " frustration with the ever increasing role of money in politics to the exclusion of focus on public policy."

    •  the margin against David Duke was like 53-44 (0+ / 0-)

      and most national republican leaders endorsed Johnston. This was in the jungle primary though so he was actually unopposed in November.
