LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A day before Tuesday’s special election, the Lincoln Police Union and the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police endorsed Sen. Mike Flood for Congress.

“Mike Flood has the proven leadership skills, policy knowledge, and a commitment to support law enforcement to best represent the 1st District in Congress,” said Jeff Sorensen, president of the Lincoln Police Union.

Flood will be running against Sen. Patty Pansing Brooks in the special election to fill the 1st Congressional District seat left vacant by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry.

“We are counting on him to stop some of the radical agendas that are coming from the halls of Congress and get commonsense support to help law enforcement professionals who keep our communities safe,” said Jim Maguire on behalf of the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police.

Flood has also earned endorsements from Gov. Pete Ricketts, former Gov. Dave Heineman and the Nebraska Farm Bureau.

Both Flood and Pansing Brooks held events on Saturday to push for Nebraskans to come out and vote on Tuesday.
