The day started early for large crowd of Nebraskans that gathered at the Midstates Construction Products near 67th and F Streets in Omaha to hear from GOP Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence. Prior to his appearance Governor Pete Ricketts took to the microphone urging those in attendance to vote for Trump and then introduced Pence to the crowd.
One of the first comments made by Pence was “We’re going to make Donald Trump the next President of the United States” and that he would “make America great again”. Pence addressed a number of important issues that included keeping jobs in Nebraska, repealing every executive order signed by President Obama and to make America safe by improving national security.
Pence said, “I think it is like Ronald Reagan said in 1964, “This is a choice between up and down.” Whether we are going to stay the path we are on to a weaker America on the world stage. A more apologetic America. A hollowed out military. Apologizing to our enemies, abandoning our friends and an America that is stifled by higher taxes, more regulations, Obamacare and the kind of trade deals that chase jobs off our shores. An America that continues to walk away from those time honored and cherished Constitutional ideals and traditions or whether we are men and women of Nebraska going to stop and plant our feet and turn around and march back up the hill to a stronger America in the world.”
Pence says when Donald Trump becomes negotiator and chief is cutting deals with other countries trade will mean jobs but American jobs first.
Pence added that folks in Indiana know something about racing toward the checkered flag and we are coming out of the fourth turn right now and it is wheel to wheel. He then urged Nebraskans to go and vote, vote early and tell everyone why you voted and for who.
