Senator Ben Nelson gave a rousing speech at the Nebraska Democratic Party’s state convention this last Sunday.  Nelson encouraged Democrats to stick together so they can fight the “party of NO.”  He lauded the successes of passing the stimulus bill, health care reform, and financial reform.  His message that Democrats are investing in America was reminiscent of Warren’s Buffet’s mantra “Invest in yourself.”

Editor‘s Note:  Senator Nelson is a moderate, independent Member of Congress. In his votes, he represents all of Nebraska, not his party. His independence is something we strongly support. Bold Nebraska wants to see more moderate, independent, populist, and progressive voices in our state and representing Nebraska at a national level. While Senator Nelson may not be progressive, he is moderate and independent. Senator Nelson is currently the only federal politician from our state that votes for our state instead of his party.  That’s what makes him Bold material.
