Sen. Ben Nelson’s (D-NE) staff “is pushing back against a bit of juicy speculation that the Nebraska Democrat would be willing to switch parties if Republicans take control of the Senate in the 2010 elections,” the Huffington Post reports.

Joe Klein noted over the weekend that “if the Republicans make substantial gains in the midterm elections, Nelson could be up for grabs next fall — it certainly would be easier for him to get reelected in Nebraska as a Republican and, if the Democrats’ Senate advantage is cut to one or two seats, he could be offered the moon by the Republicans to switch.”

Asked for comment, however, Nelson’s office “stressed that the senator remains a committed Democrat who, despite bucking the party on a host of political fronts (most recently, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s confirmation), is not interested in a party switch.”
