Meet Bob Krist

A Principled Leader For Nebraska

Bob Krist

Senator, Veteran, Husband, Father

Sen. Bob Krist, a retired veteran of the U.S. Air Force, flying more than 100 combat sorties during his 21-year military service, is running for governor because Nebraskans want a strong, independent leader who will lower taxes and make state government more efficient.

“Voters are fed up with partisan politics that divide us rather than unite us. Partisan bickering in Washington has spread to our nonpartisan Nebraska Legislature, and our current Governor has worsened the situation by personally bankrolling challengers to senators who don’t vote right down the line with him.”
