Democrat Bob Krist prepares for general election

Democrat Bob Krist prepares for general election

He hasn’t won the primary yet, but Nebraska Democrat Bob
Krist is already preparing a general election campaign for governor against Republican incumbent Pete Ricketts.

Krist announced Tuesday that he will embark on a 10-city, three-day tour across Nebraska with his running mate and fellow state senator, Lynne Walz.

Krist, a pilot and Air Force veteran, will fly himself and his campaign from Omaha to Scottsbluff, with stops in Sioux City and Grand Island. He also will stop in Bridgeport, where property taxes have
skyrocketed by an average of 140 percent since 2007.

Krist, of Omaha, is seeking the Democratic nomination against University of Nebraska at Omaha instructor Tyler Davis and Omaha community activist Vanessa Ward.

Ricketts faces one challenger for the Republican nomination.
