LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Nebraska Farm Bureau officially endorsed Jim Pillen for governor on Tuesday.

Nebraska Farm Bureau Political Action Committee (NEFB-PAC) Chair, Sherry Vinton says that Pillen was the “overwhelming choice” for the endorsement.

“Through our process, it was clear that our members believe Jim Pillen is the right person to lead our state into the future. We are proud to offer him our endorsement and support as he seeks the Republican gubernatorial nomination,” said Vinton.

Pillen says that he is honored to have the support of NFB.

We share the same vision for Nebraska’s future—one of growth and prosperity fueled by our world-class ag producers. I look forward to working with the Nebraska Farm Bureau to fix our broken tax code, strengthen our communities, grow our economy, preserve our family values, and make sure Nebraska farmers and ranchers can always be successful. When Nebraska farmers do well, all Nebraskans do better,” said Pillen.

Nebraska Farm Bureau President Mark McHargue says there are several reasons why NFB chose to endorse Pillen.

“He comes from agriculture. He’s built a successful family business here in our state. He understands the importance of strong communities. He brings public service experience to the table, serving on the UNL Board of Regents. He’s fiscally conservative, and people believe he’ll bring a commonsense approach to addressing key issues and leading our state,” said McHargue.

Nebraskans will vote on Nov. 8th of this year to see who will take the title as the next Governor.
