The Nebraska Rural Radio Association (NRRA) will broadcast a Republican Gubernatorial Forum focused on agriculture and rural issues in December.

Nebraska Farm Bureau is hosting the forum to start off its Annual Meeting and Convention at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney, Neb., Sunday, Dec. 5. The forum is scheduled from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (CT) and will be open to the public.

The Republican gubernatorial candidates who have been invited to participate are Michael Connely, Charles W. Herbster, Sen. Brett Lindstrom, Jim Pillen, and Breland Ridenour. Other Republican candidates who announce their intent to run before Nov. 15, will also be invited to participate in the forum.

The forum will be broadcast live on KRVN, KNEB, KTIC, KAWL, and KTMX radio. The live broadcast will be streamed to NRRA social media platforms.

“While the Nebraska gubernatorial primary is scheduled for May 10, 2022, now is the time for farmers, ranchers, and all Nebraskans to understand the candidates’ positions on agriculture and rural issues. Nebraska Farm Bureau is working to keep the concerns facing farmers, ranchers, and rural Nebraskans as high-profile campaign issues,” said Mark McHargue, president of Nebraska Farm Bureau.

The forum will be facilitated by moderator Susan Littlefield, farm director at Rural Radio Network.

There will also be a panel of statewide media representatives working independently to create and pose questions focused on agriculture and rural Nebraska concerns. These issues have been identified by Nebraska Farm Bureau members throughout the past year. The media members will not be identified until the day of the forum.
