NORFOLK, NE – Today, the Nebraska Cattlemen PAC released the following statement in support of conservative Republican Mike Flood's candidacy for Congress:
"We are pleased to announce our support for Mike Flood, who we believe will best represent the needs and interest of our beef cattle producers. As the Beef State, it is crucial for us to elect candidates who truly understand issues affecting the agriculture community and who will help ensure our members continue to thrive for decades to come."
"I'm honored to have the support of the Nebraska Cattlemen," said Flood. "Agriculture is the lifeblood of the 1st Congressional District, and I'm going to be a fighter for our ag producers in Washington."
The Nebraska Cattlemen PAC joins a number of leading national and Nebraska organizations in supporting Flood, including Nebraska Farm Bureau, Nebraska Right to Life, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the National Rifle Association of America. Flood has been endorsed by Governor Pete Ricketts, former Governor Dave Heineman, 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.
Governor Ricketts has called a special election on June 28th to fill the vacant 1st Congressional District seat. On April 9th, Mike Flood was nominated to be the Republican candidate on the June 28th special election ballot. If nominated in the May 10 primary election, Flood will face a Democrat opponent on the ballot twice: on June 28th to determine the district's representation through the end of the 117th Congress, and on November 8th to determine its representation in the 118th Congress.
