LINCOLN, NEB. – Nebraska State Senator Mike Hilgers has received the endorsement of the Nebraska Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee (NEFB-PAC) in his bid for re-election to serve the citizens of Legislative District 21. The NEFB-PAC endorsement is based on candidate’s positions on agriculture and rural issues and recommendations from district evaluation committees.
“Mike Hilgers shares many of the core values of the Nebraska Farm Bureau and its members. We are pleased to include him among those receiving the NEFB-PAC endorsement,” said Mark McHargue of Central City, chairman of NEFB-PAC and first vice president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.
According to McHargue, Hilgers’ support for property tax relief, reducing regulatory burdens, and focus on economic growth and jobs for the state, are among the many reasons Hilgers received the endorsement.
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 58,000 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.
