State Senator Lydia Brasch faces term limits after this session but that doesn’t mean she’ll be out of politics.
The Omaha World Herald reports this morning that Brasch has been named the newest Republican National Committeewoman for Nebraska, replacing Joyce Simmons, who resigned last month in protest of the RNC’s decision to support Republican Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race.
Moore, Alabama’s former chief justice, lost his Dec. 12 Senate race to Democrat Doug Jones amid reports the Republican nominee had improper sexual contact with teenage girls in the 1970s.
Brasch, of Bancroft tells the World Herald she will help represent urban and rural perspectives. She also called for unity in the party.
“We need to pick our direction and move forward with purpose and speed,” she said.
She said she’ll fill out the remainder of her term in the Nebraska Legislature.
