Congressman Brad Ashford Update
Congressman Ashford wanted me to thank everyone for their engagement and enthusiasm around the President’s visit to Nebraska. It was an honor for Omaha to host the President after the State of the Union and Omaha delivered a great experience for the President.
Speaking of the reelection campaign, Brad will formally kickoff his election campaign on Monday, February 8th. Please join us at Castle Barrett (4330 Leavenworth St) from 5 PM to 7PM on February 8th. You can RSVP on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/1544215012556977/.
Momentum is on our side
Today, the Omaha World Herald reported that our raised $300,000 in the last quarter of 2015 and has $679,000 on hand. We are headed it the right direction thanks to so many of you!
Our momentum is gaining national attention too. The Rothenberg Report upgraded our race rating from “Pure Toss-Up” to “Tilt Democratic”. This is a great sign that the DC crowd sees our hard work. Our team was also featured in Roll Call this week: http://www3.blogs.rollcall.com/news/brad-ashford-gets-major-political-assist-aide/.
Our campaign is going to begin staffing-up. We are going to be filling the following positions:
Assistant Finance Director
Regional Field Director
Some of these positions are entry-level, while others require significant campaign experience. We are looking for hard-working folks who will be committed to Team Ashford until November. If you or someone you know is interested, email a resume to [email protected]
The House leadership has not put forward a clear agenda for 2016. It’s likely they will make us debate repealing Obamacare or defunding women’s health services again and again. Brad will certainly continue to oppose those partisan efforts and continue to focus on growing our economy to create jobs and keeping our promise to our veterans.
