Democratic Senate hopeful Raybould launches statewide TV ad

August 21, 2018

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Jane Raybould has released a new statewide television ad highlighting her work in her family’s grocery store chain.

The 30-second spot began airing Tuesday and features Raybould sacking groceries, a job she held at her family’s first grocery store when she was younger.

Raybould says in the ad that she helps run the family stores and hears from customers who are struggling because of policies out of Washington. The ad highlights the impact of President Donald Trump’s trade policies on Nebraska farmers and mentions rising health care costs.

Raybould is looking to unseat first-term U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer, a Republican who is seeking re-election in the GOP-dominated state.
