Press release: NDP’s Kleeb comments on Mike Flood entering CD1 race

Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb issued the following statement Sunday after state Sen. Mike Flood announced he was making a primary challenge to GOP Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, who is facing federal charges for lying to the FBI about campaign contributions.

“This is the first crack in the GOP firewall. The Republicans like to pretend that Jeff Fortenberry is not in trouble — which is a fantasy. This is a generational opportunity for Democrats to win the CD1 seat by sending state Sen. Patty Pansing Brooks or Jazari Kual to Washington D.C. with new ideas and hope,” Kleeb said. “We certainly don’t need a flood of more bad ideas from the GOP.”
