Sen. Tom Brewer dismisses talk of 2020 Senate bid

GORDON, NE (Omaha World-Herald News Source) – A Nebraska senator is dismissing talk that he might challenge U.S. Senator Ben Sasse in the 2020 Republican Primary.

Senator Tom Brewer Tuesday told the Scottsbluff Star-Herald that he has no plans to run in 2020.

Chatter of Brewer’s potential candidacy began after a recent meeting in White House initiated by a member of the president’s staff.

Brewer was a candidate for Congress in 2014 when he sought the House seat held by Republican Representative Adrian Smith but he told the Star-Herald that he’s much happier to be in the State Legislature now after being elected to a four-year term in 2016.
