Nebraska Farm Bureau thanks its members for making their voice heard by turning out to the polls for Nebraska’s primary election. With your support, the overwhelming majority of Nebraska Farm Bureau Political Action Committee-endorsed (NEFB-PAC) candidates advanced to the general election.
After a very tight and hard-fought race with close to $20 million spent in the primary election, NEFB-PAC-endorsed candidate Jim Pillen won the Republican nomination for governor. He will face off against Democrat Carol Blood in November.
The NEFB-PAC also endorsed Bob Evnen for secretary of state, John Murante for state treasurer and Mike Hilgers for attorney general in statewide races. Three congressional candidates earned NEFB-PAC’s endorsement: District 1 candidate Mike Flood, District 2 Rep. Don Bacon and District 3 Rep. Adrian Smith. Paul Kenney was endorsed for District 6 University Board of Regents seat, and 14 legislative candidates earned the endorsement of the NEFB-PAC as well.
Of the 22 NEFB-PAC-endorsed candidates, all but one, a legislative candidate who narrowly lost, advanced to the general election.
