Dinsdale: Campaign Receipts Show Deep-Rooted Homegrown Support
Republican Sid Dinsdale raised $684,011 in the first three months of his campaign for Nebraska's U.S. Senate seat, as stated on the year-end Federal Election Commission report.
Nebraskans contributed 86% of the total. "I'm a lifelong Nebraskan who is supported by my fellow Nebraskans, which means a lot in this political era," Dinsdale said. "As a US Senator, I will not be beholden to outside special-interest groups."
"I look forward to representing the state that I love in our fight to restore common-sense, conservative Republican principles in Washington, D.C."
"It's important to have broad, grassroots support that incorporates numerous investors in my campaign," Dinsdale said. He noted that he gained funding from 753 donors who live in 44 of the 93 Nebraska counties, even though he is a newcomer to politics.
Dinsdale, 61, is chairman and president of the Nebraska-based Pinnacle Bancorp, Inc., with 130 banking locations in eight states. He also is active in agriculture, including cattle feeding, grain elevators, row cropping and ethanol. Between Dinsdale's banking and agricultural interests, he and his family are responsible for creating and sustaining approximately 1,800 jobs.
Dinsdale has been endorsed by Tom Osborne, former Nebraska congressman and longtime University of Nebraska football coach and athletic director, as well as former Gov. Charley Thone. Dinsdale also has been endorsed by the Nebraska Independent Community Bankers Association.
