League of Women Voters of Nebraska
Mike Flood resigned his seat in the Nebraska Unicameral before being sworn in on July 12, 2022, as the U.S. Representative for the state’s First Congressional District. Flood will finish out the term of Jeff Fortenberry, who resigned after being convicted of lying to the FBI about illegal contributions to his 2016 re-election campaign.
Flood will face Patty Pansing Brooks in the November 8 general election for a full term in Congress. Governor Pete Ricketts recently appointed Robert Dover to fill Flood’s state senate seat.
Fun fact: The First Congressional District’s most famous officeholder is William Jennings Bryan.

There is a reason bills to reform campaign finance are always heard in the last week of hearings. Politicians don't want to reform the system. #NELeg #NebraskaRead More
