"Nebraskans did not ask for a special deal, only a fair deal," Heineman said in a statement Sunday.
Senator Ben Nelson's spokesman then fired back that he would give it back if Governor Heineman asked him too.
"If Gov. Heineman contacts Sen. Nelson asking to have that provision removed from the bill, the senator will do so," Thompson said.
Nebraska's Republican Governor is calling Senator Nelson's bluff. In an interview, yesterday, with Greta Van Susteren, Gov. Heineman called on Senator Nelson to give the money back and vote no on cloture.
