"Don Bacon is the political outsider that Nebraska needs in Washington to work to control spending, balance the budget, and provide tax relief. "
What does Don stand for?
We are barely containing ISIS. We need to defeat ISIS with assertive leadership, our superior airpower, and special forces.
On Government Spending:
I support a Balanced Budget Amendment. We need elected officials who will fix this terrible problem.
On Illegal Immigration:
I support employer enforcement when it comes to hiring illegals. This is the root cause of our illegal immigration problem.
