SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Nebraska (KTIV) – Nebraska Senator Bob Krist has received a pair of agriculture endorsements in the Cornhusker state ahead of the November election.
Krist, a Democrat running for Governor against Republican Pete Ricketts, was at The Cardinal Conference Center in South Sioux City, Nebraska.
Nebraska Farmers Union and Independent Cattlemen of Nebraska (ICON) endorsed Krist for Governor.
Krist says these key endorsements came because of his pledge to reprioritize tax incentives, reinvest in education, and ultimately lower the burden of property taxes across the state.
“We have a lot of tax programs and a lot of incentives that are currently in place,” said Krist. “Approximately $800 million of revenue is being foregone right now because of tax incentives and tax loopholes and I think we need to look at all of those and make sure they are working for Nebraska. Some of those tax incentives and loopholes are valid, some of them are not.”
Krist will be making three more Siouxland stops Monday in Hartington, Ponca, and O’Neill.
