Lincoln, NE – Continuing to build momentum in her run to unseat Congressman Jeff Fortenberry in Nebraska’s First Congressional District, State Senator Kate Bolz earned a notable endorsement from former Governor, United States Senator, and Medal of Honor recipient Bob Kerrey, who released the following statement:
“I’ve had the privilege of watching and following Kate Bolz’s career in the Nebraska Legislature for the past 8 years. Her compassion, common sense and integrity are the marks of leadership that we desperately need today in Washington.
Kate Bolz will take on the drug and pharmaceutical companies and fight to lower the costs of prescription drugs. And, she will stand up for farmers, rural communities, and businesses impacted by a failed trade war.
Kate Bolz has the story, experience, and message to pull off an upset this November. Please join me in supporting my friend, Kate Bolz, as your next Congresswoman.”
In response to Senator Kerrey’s endorsement, Kate Bolz said the following:
“I’m honored to earn Senator Kerrey’s endorsement. His leadership at the state and national levels demonstrates his commitment to our shared Nebraska values of opportunity and justice. I’m especially honored to be endorsed by an impressive military veteran and thank him for his service to our country.”
This endorsement, along with Kate Bolz’s bipartisan record serving Nebraskans and outstanding fundraising capabilities—surpassing Congressman Fortenberry’s fundraising efforts to date in 2020—highlights why the race for Nebraska’s First Congressional District will be one of the “must-watch” races this cycle.
