Nebraska Farm Bureau Backs Sasse in General Election
LINCOLN, NEB. – Ben Sasse has again received the “Friend of Agriculture” endorsement of NFBF-PAC, Nebraska Farm Bureau’s political action committee. NFBF-PAC previously endorsed Sasse in the U.S. Senate Republican primary. He will continue to be a “Friend of Agriculture” candidate as he seeks election to the U.S. Senate in the Nov. general election.
“NFBF-PAC evaluates candidates following the primary elections and we are pleased to announce our continued support for Ben Sasse in his bid to become our next U.S. Senator,” said Steve Nelson, Nebraska Farm Bureau president.
Sasse won May’s Republican primary in convincing fashion and continues to run a strong grassroots campaign across Nebraska.
“Ben Sasse has only strengthened his connections and grassroots network of support among Nebraska farm and ranch families. More importantly, he continues to demonstrate a firm grasp of key issues affecting farmers and ranchers,” said Nelson.
Sasse’s belief that management and marketing decisions are best driven by the free market and his support for farm programs that protect farmers and ranchers from the inherent volatility associated with weather and global markets are among his strong points.
“Sasse has the passion and ability to help get America’s fiscal house in order and lead on key issues such as reforms to health insurance markets. He’ll also bring a strong voice for agriculture in Washington,” said Nelson.
