NORFOLK, NE – Today, Bellevue Mayor Rusty Hike, La Vista Mayor Doug Kindig, and Papillion Mayor David Black announced their endorsements of conservative Republican Mike Flood to be the 1st Congressional District's next congressman.
"I'm proud to support Mike Flood in his race for Congress," said Mayor Hike. "Mike has a deep respect for our military families and he'll be a great representative for the City of Bellevue. I look forward to voting for him, and he has my full endorsement."
"The 1st Congressional District needs a strong representative who knows how to get things done for our local communities," said Mayor Kindig. "That person is Mike Flood. Mike will be a principled, effective legislator who the people of the 1st District can depend on. I'm proud to give him my full endorsement."
"Mike Flood is a proven legislator who understands both local and state-level issues," said Mayor Black. "Mike has vision and understands how to turn that into action. While in the state Legislature, serving as Speaker, he proved to be an effective, principled leader. With his return to the Legislature, he's continued to fight for Nebraskans while getting things done. We need more of that in Washington."
"I'm honored to have the support of Mayors Hike, Kindig, and Black, and I look forward to working with them," said Flood. "I'm running for Congress to provide the effective, focused, conservative representation every community in the 1st Congressional District deserves."
Flood has been endorsed by Governor Pete Ricketts, former Governor Dave Heineman, Congressman Adrian Smith, the Nebraska Farm Bureau, the National Rifle Association of America, Nebraska Right To Life, former Nebraska Republican Party Chairmen David Kramer, Mark Quandahl, and Mark Fahleson, Republican colleagues in the Nebraska Legislature, former Nebraska State Patrol Superintendent Tom Nesbitt, and a coalition of 1st Congressional District mayors and county sheriffs.
