DescriptionThe GOP primary contest for Nebraska's U.S. Senate seat turned personal on Tuesday, when one of the candidates accused the other of being "creepy" for requesting to follow his 14-year-old daughter on Twitter.

The fireworks began when State Treasurer Don Stenberg (R) went after Attorney General Jon Bruning (R) for supporting President Barack Obama's nomination of Eric Holder to the office of U.S. attorney general.

Bruning then attacked Stenberg for his Twitter activities:
