"Battle-Tested" Soldier May Challenge Rep. Adrian Smith

Posted: Updated:

A man who calls himself "Nebraska's most battle-tested soldier" may have found his next mission, with a possible run against Congressman Adrian Smith.

The Omaha World-Herald cites sources close to Colonel Tom Brewer, saying the decorated soldier will run for Congress in the Third District.

Brewer's Twitter account won't confirm or deny the report, telling folks to "stay tuned, I'll have more to say next week."

According to media reports, Brewer is a veteran of the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan. If Brewer runs, it would pit him against Rep. Adrian Smith in the Republican primary.

Smith, 43, is beginning his eighth year in Congress this January.
