Rare Farm Bureau Endorsement for Senate Candidate Sasse
MADISON - U.S. Senate candidate Ben Sasse has picked up a truly rare endorsement. For only the second time in the organization’s history, the Nebraska Farm Bureau has endorsed a candidate in a statewide primary race. Nebraska Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson says that’s because Sasse understands the problems facing agriculture – and has solutions. Nelson introduced Sasse to about 20 Farm Bureau members Friday afternoon at the Schmidt family farm northwest of Madison. Sasse told the group that the nation needs to have an honest conversation about the cost of importing oil from the Mideast, and discussed his opposition to Obamacare. Sasse faces Shane Osborn, Sid Dinsdale, Bart McLeay and Clifton Johnson for the Republican nomination to replace the retiring Mike Johanns.
