Col. Tom Brewer continues campaign across District 3

Posted: Updated:

A candidate for U.S. Representative is looking to replace a long-term incumbent on Capitol Hill makes his first campaign stop in Scottsbluff.
 
Colonel Tom Brewer hosted a meet and greet Monday night in Scottsbluff.

The recently retired military man is running against Congressman Adrian Smith for Nebraska's Third District. Brewer filed for office the day after he retired from the military.

He says that the nations debt, second amendment rights, and a smaller government are all major issues for him.

A series of chemo therapy for leukemia prevented brewer from campaigning earlier this winter... but is now ready to hit the ground running.
 
"Now that we're done with the chemo and we're able to do these long tours all through western Nebraska and south west Nebraska, I think we can really hit some battle rhythm and be ready to make a run for the 3rd district."
 
Brewer hopes to have at least one debate against Congressman Smith before the May primary.

Smith wants to wait until the filing deadline to make sure no more candidates enter the race.
