Statement on Mike Flood Announcement


I spoke to Mike Flood this weekend about his very personal decision to permanently withdraw from the race for governor. My respect for him as a husband and father is immeasurable, and as I campaign across the state it is clear that Nebraskans everywhere are thinking of Mike and Mandi and praying for their health and happiness. 

Mike supported my campaign in 2008 and we remained allies during our service together in the legislature. We worked closely on many issues and had very few differences on policy. Mike obviously would have been a very strong competitor in the race, and his withdrawal from the field is significant.

I am fortunate to call Mike Flood a friend, and Ellen and I send our prayers to the Flood Family as they continue on the path to recovery.
