Matt Innis, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate running against incumbent Ben Sasse, received endorsements from two key county GOP parties.  Scottsbluff and Lincoln Counties both endorsed Innis this weekend.

“All of the work we’ve been doing in rural Nebraska is paying off as people get to know me and my name gets out to Republican voters,” Innis said.  “My conservative message and the fact that I am the only candidate in the race voting for President Trump makes a huge difference to voters across Nebraska.  My support of farmers and ranchers, when my opponent abandoned them and quit the Senate Agriculture Committee after just two years, also has Republican voters excited about supporting my candidacy,” Innis said.

Innis has been gaining support throughout Nebraska, but especially in the critical, heavily-Republican Third Congressional District.  It is estimated that up to 50% of the Republican Primary vote will come from the Third Congressional District.  Innis has been traveling throughout the district listening to voters and answering their questions.  His opponent has hardly been seen in rural Nebraska for years according to voters.  

The support for Innis in Lincoln County, which includes the city of North Platte, was unanimous.  The Lincoln County Resolution endorsing Innis read, in part: “Matt Innis, having expressed strong support of our Republican President, Donald Trump; and a commitment to maintaining an active and ongoing conversation with the citizens of the State of Nebraska; is hereby endorsed by the Lincoln County GOP Convention this March 15, 2020, as the Republican Senatorial Candidate in the Nebraska Primary Senate Election.”

“We’re building everything in our campaign to peak in May and this is yet another sign that our campaign is gaining strength.  As we head into the final two months of campaigning, we definitely have momentum with the grassroots in the Republican Party,” Innis said.

    Hello. I live in the panhandle of Nebraska and only found out you were running because I got my ballot early to keep my social distance on election day. You need to get information out to people in this part of Nebraska. North Platte is NOT western Nebraska — there is more west of North Platte. I voted for Ben Sasse last election, and he was a great disappointment. I look at the issues and decide if they are in line with what I want out of a Senator. Yours are, however, Ben Sasse’s were also and he was a disappointment! Should you do what you say (as President Trump has), I’d gladly vote for you again in your next term. As it stands right how, you have my vote. Please don’t disappointment like so many other politicians have!

    I’m a life-long, 64 year old Republican who grew up on a farm between Milford and Crete Nebraska. My 90 year old Dad, brothers, sister and I have watched the growing seasons lengthen and the climate change over those years. Because of those changes it is harder to grow the normal crops in Nebraska. Did you know some farmers in the southwestern part of Nebraska have been growing cotton for several years?

    What do you think about the changing climate and how it caused at least 70 counties in Nebraska to declare disasters because of the massive and widespread floods in 2019? MANY farmers and ranchers continue to suffer because of that flood.
    Other recent climate disasters in Nebraska include:
    2011 Many months-long flooding of the Missouri River
    2012 Deep and wide drought that caused huge wildfires in north-central Nebraska and South Dakota. I think Senator Fischer’s neighbors ranches burned, but not hers.

    If my name seems familiar, you may know my Dad Eugene or brother David who has been on the Milford School Board for around 20 years. Or, because you like or hate our 10+ year old state law that protects people’s health by making just about every business smoke free. I helped get that law passed as the leader of the Group to Alleviate Smoking Pollution of Nebraska, Inc. Now, if we could just change that law to make in-home day cares to be smoke free . . .

    Good luck in the primary!

    WE were so sure of Ben Sasse; look what happened! He’s not to be trusted! You have our votes and as much as we can contribute to help you. Let’s get you on the radio news and entertainment shows. You can do this, and we wish you Godspeed, with a bit of Irish Luck!

  4. Vicki Burns says:

    I hadn’t known Ben Sasse’s contender and I am relieved to see that you align closer to my values on the issues than he. Relieved is an understatement! I will promote your name to everyone I can reach within my circle and donate as we are able.
    All the best to you and yours!
