Jane Raybould makes pitch in Kearney as official democratic candidate
The 2018 U.S. Senate race came to Kearney Tuesday as democrat, Jane Raybould, made her pitch at Thunderhead Brewery.
As of Monday, Raybould is officially a democratic candidate in the November 2018 election for U.S. Senate.
Raybould discussed a few issues she'd like to address if elected, but one she says many Nebraskans are concerned about is the Affordable Care Act commonly referred to as Obamacare.
"We need a health care plan that's affordable, we would like to see the cost of health care come down, we would like to see the cost of prescription drugs come down, this matters to them and their lives,” said Raybould.
Raybould says if elected, she would like to join the Agriculture Committee to be a voice for farm families. When discussing NAFTA, candidate Raybould says we need to build more trade relationships and that removing Nebraska from TPPD doesn't make sense.
"We need a senator who will stand up to President Trump and stand up for our farmers and ranchers. That's not happening in Washington, DC. today. We're finding out U.S. senators are more in the pocket of special interests and not listening to their constituents back home,” said Raybould.
Raybould will continue her kitchen table tour around the state. Tuesday night, she met with Lexington and North Platte folks to hear their concerns.
