I’m all in! Jane Raybould is running for the U.S. Senate in Nebraska. Jane could not be more qualified. She has been part of a successful family business, a City Councilwoman, and a County Commissioner. And she is a good person – how often do we hear that now? Not very often, that’s for sure.
In announcing her candidacy Jane said: “As a business owner, job creator, public servant, wife and mom with two great kids, I truly believe America only succeeds when all of us succeed.” And the nation needs “leaders who will put people before party and common sense before political games.”
Jane wants to serve on the Senate Agriculture Committee, something neither of our current Senators has chosen to do; and in a state where Agriculture and Food Processing are our biggest industries. For more on Jane’s policy statements check out the Lincoln Journal Star and Facebook.

On February 8, 2017, I wrote about why I would not be voting for Deb Fischer in 2018. Those reasons are still true, and there are even more reasons since that time to not vote for Fischer. After the violence from white supremacists, the KKK, and Neo-Nazis at Charlottesville – what did Fischer say? Nothing! ! After Trump said there were “very fine people” among those same white supremacists, the KKK, and Neo-Nazis, what did Fischer say? Nothing!
At her re-election announcement in June, Fischer said: “It has been the honor of my lifetime to be your fighter, and today I am asking you for the chance to keep on fighting for our shared values,” It has become clear to me that her values are NOT my values. She voted to confirm Betsy DeVos, she voted to gut the Affordable Care Act without a rational replacement plan, and she supports the current administrative blindly and without caring how those policies affect Nebraskans, her constituents.
Please join me in helping elect Jane Raybould. Read about Jane, and I think you’ll see that she is the future we need in Nebraska.
