question-markCan't make this stuff up. Just a few months removed from the 2008 election, Rep. Adrian Smith from out in NE-03 Congressional District has a fresh faced challenger that sounds all too familiar.

Rebekah Davis of Alliance said she's filed with the Federal Election Commission to start raising money to run in Nebraska's expansive 3rd District.

The 27-year-old Davis grew up and went to high school in Alliance. She got her undergraduate degree at Indiana University, and her master's of divinity at Yale University, graduating in 2006.

She moved back to Nebraska at the end of last year after working as an embassy liaison in Washington, D.C., for Travel Document Express.

She speaks French, Portuguese and Farsi.

She sounds an awful lot like Scott Kleeb in 2005 doesn't she? Yale grad from Western Nebraska who no one has ever heard of running against Adrian Smith. This is really odd.

She's already got a website -- not much to it to be honest -- and an ActBlue page so she's obviously semi-connected to the world of politics. I'm going to try and get in contact with Ms. Davis in the next few days and see what she's about.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
