Blood announces for governor: ‘I’m not a sacrificial lamb’

Nebraska Democrats have a candidate for governor, and she says she's not a "sacrificial lamb."

As expected State Senator Carol Blood announced her bid for the state’s top job this morning on the steps of the Capitol in Lincoln.

According to the Bellevue lawmaker, who says she is disappointed with the Nebraska Republican Party, the state’s politics is suffering from “toxic polarization.”

She also promised to, “Expose the true history of property taxes over the last three decades.”

Three Republicans have already launched their campaigns: Cattleman Charles Herbster, State Senator Brent Lindstrom and University of Nebraska Regent Jim Pillen.

As News Channel Nebraska first reported earlier this year, former Governor Dave Heineman, a Republican, is also considering a run.
