Mike Flood Earns Nebraska Farm Bureau Endorsement for First Congressional District

LINCOLN, NEB. – U.S. Rep. Mike Flood has been endorsed by the Nebraska Farm Bureau Political Action Committee (NEFB-PAC). Flood is seeking re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Nebraska’s 1st Congressional District. Rep. Flood earned the endorsement by demonstrating his understanding of agriculture and its impact on our economy, according to Mark McHargue, Nebraska Farm Bureau (NEFB) president.

“Throughout his career in both the Nebraska Legislature and now in Washington, Rep. Flood has been a strong advocate for Nebraska Farm Bureau priorities such as tax reform, working to expand rural broadband access, as well as growing opportunities for economic development in rural areas. We are proud to offer him our endorsement and support as he seeks to continue representing Nebraskans in Congress,” said McHargue.

Rep. Flood consistently spearheads the advocacy for “good governance” by actively urging the Biden administration to address agricultural and regulatory matters. Furthermore, he maintains his collaboration with NEFB and congressional leaders to ensure the successful passage of the next Farm Bill. He strongly supports increasing markets for Nebraska agricultural products throughout the world.

Rep. Flood has also championed efforts to reduce unwarranted regulations on Nebraska farmers and ranchers that needlessly increase the costs of doing business, in addition to pushing back on regulations that would infringe on private property rights.

“We’re pleased to support Rep. Flood as he seeks to continue to serve those in Nebraska’s 1st District. We know he will work every day to protect the freedoms of Nebraska families, grow our economy, and reduce federal overreach. We look forward to working with him for the betterment of Nebraska and the nation,” said McHargue.

Rep. Flood earned the NEFB-PAC endorsement based on results of NEFB’s grassroots selection process, which involves gathering input from local County Farm Bureaus across the state.

The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service, and advocacy efforts. More than 55,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
