Fellow Libertarians! We need to rush to Senator Laura Ebke side as she is being targeted by the Nebraska Republican Party who is salty that she left their old age political group and joined a real thinking, self-sustaining, political movement.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska lawmaker who left the Republican Party to become one of the nation’s few Libertarian state legislators is facing the political fight of her life against two Republicans challengers, including one backed by Gov. Pete Ricketts.
The showdown began after state Sen. Laura Ebke switched parties in 2016, citing concerns about the GOP governor’s public demands for more “platform Republicans” in the Legislature.
The race is one of the most closely watched in a Tuesday primary that will eliminate one of the three candidates for the seat and also determine party nominees for governor, U.S. Senate and Nebraska’s three U.S. House seats.
GOP officials have unleashed a wave of negative mail and radio ads against Ebke, of Crete, turning the small-town primary into one of the most hotly contested races in Nebraska. Ricketts, a multimillionaire, has donated $5,000 to one of her opponents, Al Riskowski, a longtime ally.
We need all our Libertarian friends to quickly donate to Sen. Ebke’s campaign and show the establishment that Libertarians are here to stay.
Head over to her campaign site and do what you can to support the Senator. https://lauraebke.com/
