Patty Pansing Brooks

LINCOLN - State Senator Patty Pansing Brooks has officially announced her run for Nebraska’s First Congressional District currently held by Representative Jeff Fortenberry.

Pansing Brooks said she won’t focus on the allegations against Fortenberry.

"I'm sorry for Fortenberry and I'm sorry for his family as it's something no one should go through. I know he has serious allegations against him and I'm not going to focus on that, because the courts will decide all of that. I'm instead going to focus on his record and think how I would do things differently for CD1 than he has done."

Pansing Brooks said she would have voted for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that Fortenberry voted no on as it will bring a lot of much needed money to Nebraska for roads, bridges, broadband, and much more.

She said she’ll also be focusing on healthcare access for all, growing economic opportunity, and a wider circle of compassion.
