McCoy makes bold promise to create jobs, lower taxes if elected Nebraska governor

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

The final push to the Nebraska primary is on for six Republicans fighting for the right to represent the GOP in the race for governor.

Thursday night's debate, in Omaha, is the last one before the May 13th primary election.

During the last debate, in Norfolk, State Senator Beau McCoy set a bold goal if he's elected. "If I didn't cut property taxes by $100-million, grow jobs by 10,000, and travel 100,000 miles around the state and the world to promote jobs in Nebraska, I wouldn't run for re-election," said Sen. Beau McCoy, (R) Candidate for Governor.

In addition to serving as a state senator, McCoy also owns a construction company. And, as a small business owner, McCoy wants to continue Governor Dave Heineman's efforts to lower taxes and grow the economy.

The Dakota County Republican party is hosting a "meet and greet" event, in Dakota City, Wednesday night from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Old Dane Golf Club. McCoy, and fellow gubernatorial candidate Mike Foley, will be there.
