HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Gubernatorial candidates Brett Lindstrom and Jim Pillen made stops around the state Monday in the hopes of racking up a few more votes.

Lindstrom made a pit stop in Hastings Monday morning, where he toured the construction site of Mary Lanning Heatlhcare’s upcoming medical office building.

Lindstrom and his running mate, Dave Rippe both spent their day traveling to different areas of expansion in Nebraska. He told Local4 News that he wanted to visit Hastings because Rippe, as well as some of his family members, live there.

Lindstrom noted he’s making these efforts to make connections with others.

“Running for governor, we want to make sure that we’re walking alongside communities to meet the challenges, the needs of the future and there’s no better way to do that than meeting with people to see what’s going on and what’s happening here can be replicated all across the state so, it’s exciting to meet with those folks and see all the great things that are happening,” he said.

After Hastings, Lindstrom said his next stop was Lincoln.

Now Jim Pillen flew into Hastings Municipal Airport this afternoon. Alongside Pillen, were Governor Pete Ricketts and former coach and congressman, Tom Osborne.

When it comes to his priorities, Pillen said he’s keeping all places in mind across the state.

“We’ve incorporated every county in the state into our campaign,” Pillen said. “It’s really, really important that all 93 counties matter. The entire state of Nebraska matters, all the people of Nebraska matter, and, it’s the last day, we’re trying to reach areas where we’ve got a lot of Republican votes and we’re just trying to get more of our fair share of them.”

While at the airport, Pillen spoke about his goals and priorities if he were elected as the next governor.

Both Pillen and Lindstrom are Republican candidates.
