Questions raised about Farm Bureau endorsement of Sasse

Nonpartisan U.S. Senate candidate Jim Jenkins, sent a letter to the Nebraska Farm Bureau yesterday questioning their endorsement of Ben Sasse in the U.S. Senate race to replace retiring Senator Mike Johanns. In the letter Jenkins writes… "While I realize that the Nebraska Farm Bureau decided to endorse Mr. Sasse early on, I would like to place my rural resume in front of you and allow you to compare it to that of Mr. Sasse who, while very intellectual, has virtually no agricultural or private sector experience and a very thin Nebraska resume, having moved back to the state only five years ago."

That letter sparked a response from Steve Nelson the President of the Nebraska Farm Bureau who said "Our next U.S. Senator will face many challenges. One of the largest is tackling the issue of runaway federal spending and government growth. The future prosperity of Nebraska farm and ranch families is dependent on Congress' ability to get our country's fiscal house in order, which has a direct connection to the development of sound farm policy.  We believe Ben Sasse is the right person to address this critical issue and with that ensure, we continue to have federal farm policy that meets the needs of farmers, ranchers and all Americans who benefit from the food, fuel and fiber derived from agriculture."

Republican United States Senate candidate Ben Sasse says he understands why independent candidates might have an appeal for voters this fall.
Two independents have joined the November ballot with Sasse and Democrat Dave Domina. Sasse says voters have seen enough of the two parties which dominate Washington. Both Jim Jenkins of Callaway and Todd Watson of Lincoln have qualified for the ballot.
