LINCOLN, NE – Today, in a press conference in the State Capitol Rotunda, Governor Pete Ricketts and former Governor Dave Heineman announced their endorsements of Republican State Senator Mike Flood to represent Nebraska's 1st Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
"Mike Flood is a strong conservative who will fight for Nebraska's interests and push back against the Far Left in Washington," said Governor Ricketts. "We can't take risks with the 1st District's representation. Mike is the clear choice to help Republicans retake the House and fire Nancy Pelosi as speaker. Republicans need to come together to back the strongest candidate, and that's Mike."
"Mike Flood and I worked together to pass the two largest tax relief packages in the history of the state at that time," said Governor Heineman. "He authored the most sweeping pro-life legislation in America to protect the unborn and I signed it into law. Mike Flood is an outstanding leader and a skilled legislator. He is a fiscal conservative, a man of action, and a person of integrity. I am proud to support, endorse, and vote for Mike Flood for Congress."
"I've had the privilege of working alongside both Governor Ricketts and Governor Heineman to move our state forward," said Flood. "I'm honored to have their endorsements. Our campaign is picking up more momentum every day. With the help of Republicans across the 1st Congressional District, we will win in May, we will win in November, and we will help save America."
