Two of the top three Republican candidates for United States Senate have released financial disclosure forms early, ahead of the Tuesday primary. One won’t.
Republican Deb Fischer, a state senator from Valentine, says the financial disclosure forms required of candidates should be released prior to the deadline, which happens to be Tuesday, primary election day. Fischer is calling on all Republican candidates of United States Senate to release the forms prior to May 15th.
“And if we don’t have that transparency on candidates available to voters before the primary, that’s not right. That’s not the way that we should be operating,” Fischer tells Nebraska Radio Network.
Fischer has released her report.
Jon Bruning, the state Attorney General, says he has released financial disclosures every year since 1995, when he first won election to public office. Will he release this year’s report early?
“They’ve already got mine,” Bruning replies. “I released it on May 15th of last year and I’ll realize it on May 15th of this year.”
Don Stenberg, the state Treasurer, released his in March.
