Governor candidate Carol Blood picks former Sen. Al Davis as her running mate
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – State Sen. Carol Blood of Bellevue, who is running for governor as a Democrat, officially announced former Sen. Al Davis as her running mate.
Davis was a registered Republican when he served in the Legislature but has since switched to the Democratic Party.
“I wanted to make sure that whoever I brought in had the same fire in their belly to make Nebraska a better place to live and raise their families,” Blood said. “Al Davis is the one. He’s got past political experience, he’s got great experience when it comes to the environment, he’s a cattleman. He has everything I could possibly want in a running mate and, best of all, we get along really well.”
According to Blood, agriculture issues such as the upcoming drought and climate change are going to affect upcoming sessions of the legislature. She said it is important for her partner to have a good grasp of these issues.
Following the fundraiser, Blood and Davis plan to hit the road and start visiting counties as a duo to raise awareness for their campaign.
Of the GOP candidates, only Sen. Brett Lindstrom has declared a running mate.
