GOP Senate candidates finish second debate in Omaha

Posted: Updated:

Four Nebraska GOP senate candidates participated in their second debate Tuesday night at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
 
It was a packed room as the candidates - Sid Dinsdale, Ben Sasse, Shane Osborn and Bart McLeay weighed in on several topics, including taxes and cutting benefits.

During the one hour debate, candidates also spoke about their views on the current government and congressional leaders.
 
"In the government overreach that I see in all of my customers, my friends, our own business I really want to push back hard at that and shrink government if I can," said Pinnacle Bank Executive Sid Dinsdale.
 
"I think we need a constitutional recovery in this country and we're not on a path to doing it right now," said Midland University president Ben Sasse. "This isn't about a job for me. This is about a calling to try to have a constitutional recovery."
 
Omaha business attorney Bart McLeay also voiced concerns, "I've had to reach across the aisle when I'm talking to judges and juries and arbitrators who don't share my view initially and I have to bring them around. We have gridlock in Congress and I can do something about that."
 
"I can't sit back and watch our country decline," said former Nebraska treasurer. "I think we need to put more people in Washington D.C. That'll put the country first above their own political well being."
 
The candidates are vying to win Senator Mike Johanns' seat in the U.S. Senate.
