MONDAY AT 2:30PM CT IN OMAHA – DEMOCRATS AND ALLIES TO HOLD PRESS CONFERENCE WITH SMALL BUSINESS OWNER WHILE MIKE PENCE IS 15 MINUTES ACROSS THE BORDER IN COUNCIL BLUFFS

8 AUGUST 2016

OMAHA – Monday at 2:30pm CT, Nebraska Democratic Chair-Elect Jane Kleeb and AFL-CIO President Sue Martin will hold a press conference to discuss why Donald Trump’s economic plans would harm Nebraskans and kill Omaha jobs. Also speaking will be Megan Hunt, a small business owner who sells products made in the USA – in contrast to Donald Trump who makes his products in countries like Mexico, China, Bangladesh, and Turkey — and Willie Hamilton, the president of Black Men United, an Omaha grassroots organization focused on empowering Black men and their families.

Meanwhile, Mike Pence will be 15 minutes away from Omaha in Council Bluffs, Iowa, but he won’t make time to cross the border to visit Nebraska. Hillary Clinton visited Omaha last week and spoke to a crowd of over 3,300 Nebraskans.

Jane Kleeb, Chair-Elect, Nebraska Democratic Party
Sue Martin, President, Nebraska AFL-CIO
Willie Hamilton, President, Black Men United
Megan Hunt, small business owner, Hello Holiday
