Fairbury Journal-News Endorses Tom Brewer

The Fairbury Journal-News has endorsed Col. Tom Brewer, Republican candidate for Congress in Nebraskas Third District, according to publisher Fred Arnold. Brewer is challenging incumbent Adrian Smith.

Brewer spent the day campaigning in Fairbury last week, touring businesses and sharing his message with voters. According to Arnold, I like Toms message. He has real world experience, not political machine experience. Typically, if you are an incumbent Republican in the third district, you are an automatic shoe-in, but hopefully that will change this year.

The Fairbury Journal-News is currently the fourth largest non-daily newspaper in Nebraska and the second largest non-chain owned paper and covers Jefferson, and portions of Saline, Thayer and Gage Counties in southeastern Nebraska.
