On Nov. 8, Nebraska voters cast their votes for the midterm election. As of this morning, while election results remain unofficial, bankers undoubtedly see the impact of their votes and the NBA BankPAC. Unofficial federal, state and constitutional officer race results indicate that candidates who received support from Nebraska bankers through NBA BankPAC Committee decisions were elected in 22 of the 26 legislative races and all eight constitutional officer and federal races. See the list here.
This election cycle, the NBA membership, through NBA BankPAC, contributed nearly $250,000 to Nebraska’s state constitutional candidates and state and federal legislative candidates.
The NBA BankPAC Committee, led by Chair Luke Rickertsen of Flatwater Bank (Gothenburg) carefully reviewed legislative and constitutional officer candidates to determine the Committee’s financial election campaign support. NBA BankPAC support was based primarily on the candidate’s interest in ensuring a high-quality, competitive business and financial services environment in Nebraska.
In addition, if you have a relationship with a legislator, we are looking for NBA Contact Bankers to call upon during the legislative session. NBA Contact Bankers are NBA members who are acquainted with legislators in their district and other areas of the state. Periodically, the NBA issues specific "calls to action" to Contact Bankers to reach out to their legislators on issues of importance.
