Spencer K. Danner, Jr. is the new vice chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party.
Danner, compliance director at First National Bank of Omaha, was elected Saturday by the party’s State Central Committee.
“It is an honor and privilege to be elected Vice Chair and represent the great state of Nebraska,” Danner said. “Our party is stronger when diverse voices from all over the state are united; from Omaha to Scottsbluff and Valentine to McCook, representing the will of Nebraskans. My goal is to build, invest, and win elections all across this state; together, we will.”
Danner now serves as a member of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) alongside Chair Jane Kleeb and DNC Committeewoman Charlene Ligon and Committeeman Ron Kaminski. Danner will also serve as a member of the Association of State Democratic Committees (ASDC).
“Spencer Danner has a long legacy of leadership in his family from his great-grandfather, Sen. Danner, and his mother, who served as a fire captain,” Kleeb said. “Spencer is breaking ground as our party’s first African American Vice Chair. I am proud to serve with him to keep building our party with all shades of blue at the table working to elect Democrats.”
