Earlier this morning, gubernatorial candidates took questions from their parties, in hopes of gaining their vote. Gubernatorial candidates touched on such issues as capital punishment, green energy and ethanol, immigration, healthcare, life issues, tourism, the Nebraska economy, agriculture, and many others.

On Wednesday morning, Political Action Committees held an event to meet with voters and candidates in upcoming elections. Each PAC had a booth that delegates came to and talked about the issues and the candidates in the elections. Through this event, the PACs became better acquainted with general election candidates, gubernatorial candidates, and their stances on the issues, and the partnerships developed through this event could really influence the outcomes of the elections as PACs now have a better idea of which candidates they’d like to support through advertising and by other means. Here are some photo highlights of the event.
Attention: all candidates for office and Political Action Committees! Would you like to get your message across? Why not advertise right here on the blog? This blog is viewed by delegates at the terminals on all floors of Schramm Hall and can fit an incredible amount of text and pictures! If this is something that interests you, visit the blog office on the first floor of Schramm Hall for more details. It is the first glass office past the restrooms.
