After embarking on a Multi-day, multi-city tour, Governor candidate Senator Bob Krist found himself at The Black Cow Fat Pig in Norfolk Friday. He was there to talk to citizens about what issues concern them.

But this city tour wasn't just about discussing the issues. It was also to introduce his running mate for Lt. Governor, Senator Lynne Walz. Someone that he feels is more than qualified for the position.

“I selected her because she's a professional,” Krist said. “She's been successful in everything she's ever done in life, and obviously she's had a great, short run, in the legislature, she's a good person and i'm glad to have her as a part of the team.”

Walz has throughly enjoyed the experience of getting to tour Nebraska since being announced as the Lt. Governor candidate, especially since the tour started in her hometown of Fremont.

It's been so good,” Walz said. “There's a lot of energy out there and every place we stop the energy builds and builds and builds, it's almost like a snowball effect.”

While it has been an enjoyable experience, Walz and Krist have a very specific message they want to get across to each town they visit.

“We want to make sure that people understand that we are working for them,” Walz said.

“We will work in a very non-partisan way to get things done, so the other issues, property tax, education, mental health facilities and mental health issues, all of those things you have to be able to work with Nebraskans.”



Krist hopes that by working with Nebraskans, they will see a need and place for change.


“I've said in many places, and on many issues, i'm the antithesis of Pete Ricketts,” Krist said.

“So if you like what's happening in this state right now, if you like the fact that your property taxes have gone up and in some cases doubled in the last six years, if you like those programs, then you know who to vote for. If you want a change and a new direction and you want us to think outside of that box, those parameters and find new solutions, then you need to vote for the Krist administration.”
