Nebraska Dem Skips Vote To Fly In Air Force One With Obama

Today, Rep. Brad Ashford (NE-02) missed a crucial vote on a resolution to overturn President Obama’s burdensome regulatory mandates.

Instead of representing his constituents, Ashford was taking his first ride on Air Force One with President Obama. Ashford even said “the idea of being able to accompany him … it doesn’t get any better than that.”

As Ashford gears up for what will be a tough re-election campaign, it’s clear where his priorities lie: flying high with liberal Democrats at odds with Nebraska interests.
