"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.

Thanks to the Christian Real Estate Agent Network (CRAN) for their warm welcome today. The need to replace ACA was clearly the most passionate topic for these self employed leaders. One couple said they're paying $2,000 a month and two folks said they have $12,000 deductibles on their policies. ACA has become unaffordable and is hard broke. They know my opponent voted for ACA twice and this is the terrible result. I strongly support the replacement of ACA.

Also, the agents talked about the costly impact of regulations on their business and their customers, and know I would have voted for the REINS Act which would put needed constraints on the bureaucracy. My opponent continues to oppose the needed REINS Act.

I will be a force for positive change in Washington. ...
