Stothert and Neary questioned as primary vote nears

It’s generally believed that Republican Mayor Jean Stothert’s push for an unprecedented third term finds her finishing first in Tuesday’s primary, with one of two Democrats, there are four running, finishing second and facing her in May’s general election.

Based on money and media those two Democrats are RJ Neary and Jasmine Harris.

Our full video report is above asking Neary—who has put in $100,000 of his own money into the campaign—if fund raising has been difficult.

We also talk with Stothert who is using tobacco tax money to help fund a new “transformational” deal with the University of Nebraska Medical Center—Stothert opposed the tobacco tax when she was on the city council.
