The Good Gal
Kara Eastman has two decades of leadership experience in the non-profit sector, the perfect balance to the GOP’s gaggle of wealthy white dudes. Kara founded Omaha Healthy Kids Alliance, in addition to work with Friendship Shelter, Rainbow House, and other NFPs; wouldn’t it be great if Congress had a few more resumés like that? One of our most progressive candidates, she’s now running with more institutional support than when she nearly flipped this seat in 2018.
The Bad Guy
Don Bacon served the nation in the Air Force for more than 29 years, attaining the rank of Brigadier General. Then he went to Congress to take health care away from the very people he’d been protecting so long, which doesn’t make a lick of sense to me. He opposes women’s rights and LGBTQ rights and gun control. To Don Bacon, there’s always plenty of money for the military (when all you have is a hammer…) and the GOP’s wealthy donor class, but health insurance for America’s working people? Sorry, chumps.
