Nebraska gubernatorial hopeful visits voters in Norfolk, Wayne


One of the two democratic candidates for Nebraska governor is introducing himself to Siouxland voters.

Chuck Hassebrook made stops in northeast Nebraska Thursday to tout his credentials to be the person who replaces outgoing Governor Dave Heineman next year.

Hassebrook is the former director for the Center for Rural Affairs in Lyons, Nebraska and was the first Democrat to announce his intentions to enter the race earlier this year.

In Norfolk Thursday, Hassebrook said his goal, if elected, would be to create sustainable jobs for Nebraska.  Hassebrook says he also wants to examine whether the current regulatory climate in the state is fair to all businesses.

"So often I find we write regulations with big business in mind, that really don't work for small businesses. We need to fix that, " said Hassebrook.

Hassebrook also said he wants to see Nebraska do more to develop wind power and other alternative sources of energy.     

Hassebrook also made stops in Wayne and Hartington.

He and State Senator Annette Dubas are the two democratic candidates who will square off in next year's primary.
