A Conversation With Dave Domina
Domina said that his opponent's lack of availability shows his true colors, and that he would continue to contribute to the current gridlock in Washington.
Joe spoke with Dave Domina, running for the Democratic Party.
The lawyer from Northeast Nebraska is well-known for his representation of local farmers in the Keystone XL Pipeline Case.
Dave Domina is running for the state’s open US Senate seat. He understands the dynamics and challenges of getting elected as Democrat in a Republican stronghold state.
“The biggest challenge is to make or get people to just consider the possibility that the best candidate is not one who are readily identified with the Republican Party,” said Domina.
Domina says there’s a stark contrast between himself and his opponent Ben Sasse, and especially on issues like Social Security and Medicare.
“You know, I tell people and I remind them that from Eisenhower to Reagan, all those presidents and Bush, I said that the Social Security program should never be privatized,” said Domina. “That’s stupid talk! Eisenhower actually called it stupid talk. The Medicare system was embraced by Ronald Reagan, not attacked by him, the same with Bush I. I remind them that even George Bush II, there most recent president, wasn’t extreme like this.”
Domina is well–known for defending local farmers in the Keystone XL case. His opponent supports the pipeline, and if that’s the issue that decides the race, Domina likes his chances.
“You know what; I hope it comes down to that, because if it comes down to that I’m going to win this election. And the reason I’m going to win it is because that darn Trans Canada has not been fair or reasonable for Nebraska farmers or ranchers. It proposes an agreement that would abandon that pipeline under the ground and set up a fight over every spill between the landowner and pipeline company, a fight the size that would break most families just to be involved in the legal dispute. Those are ridiculous things,” said Domina.
Domina said that his opponent’s lack of availability shows his true colors, and that he would continue to contribute to the current gridlock in Washington.
