Speaker of Legislature to be in Imperial for ‘Meet and Greet’
Mark and Kathy Christensen of Imperial will be hosting a “Meet and Greet” for Speaker of the Legislature Mike Flood of Norfolk this Sunday, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in their home at 139 Yucca Drive.
While Flood, a Republican who is finishing up the last of his eight years in the Nebraska Legislature, has not declared officially, he is testing the waters for a possible run for Governor.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, he has created a new campaign committee, Mike Flood for Nebraska, that is separate from the one created for his legislative elections.
