"Don Bacon is the political outsider that Nebraska needs in Washington to work to control spending, balance the budget, and provide tax relief. "

— Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts

What does Don stand for?

On Terrorism:

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.
