Only in Nebraska

In the first half of the 20th century, George Norris was Nebraska's best-known, best-loved, and sometimes most-hated politician. As a staunch Republican who was described as a fighting liberal, Norris defied stereotypes. In this segment from a 1995 NET documentary, "The Fighting Liberal: George Norris", former Nebraska State Senator David Landis portrays Norris in his fight to create the only one-house legislature in America.
