Hassebrook Says He's the Democrat who can win the Governor's Race
LYONS - Democrat Chuck Hassebrook is running for governor, two years after entering, then bowing out of the U.S. Senate race. Hassebrook got out of the Senate race in deference to Bob Kerrey, who lost to Republican Deb Fischer. Hassebrook says he disagrees with Governor Dave Heineman on tax reform and rejects the governor's call to reduce individual and corporate income taxes. Hassebrook says Nebraska's main priority should be to reduce property taxes. Hassebrook is the former executive director of the Center for Rural Affairs in Lyons. He says he is the Democrat who can win the race, because he knows rural Nebraska.
