Friends, there's so much to share about our campaign and our Countdown to Change Tour:
Just a quick note from Nebraska. Today marks day six of our ten day, thirty town "Countdown to Change Tour." The days are ticking down and my truck is filling up with messages from voters all over Nebraska expressing the kind of change they want to see out of Washington.
Join me below for some more stories and a quick video from our recent travels.
Today marks Day 4 of our ten day, thirty town Countdown for Change Tour.
Over the past few days we've met a lot of voters from all over Nebraska, and had a great number of them write on my truck the kind of change they want to see from their leaders in Washington.
Please join me below to read what Nebraskans have been saying.
Sunday morning we launched our Countdown to Change Tour of Nebraska from my family's house in Hastings, Nebraska.
As I told you Friday, we will travel to thirty cities and towns in ten days in my pickup truck and allow Nebraskans from every corner of our state to write out the kind of change they want to see in Washington directly on the sides of my truck...like this woman in North Loup, Nebraska below:

Sunday, I embark on a ten day, thirty town Countdown to Change Tour of the State of Nebraska:
I intend to share photos and stories from that trip with you right here. To start, I'd like to share the "Ten Commitments" I've made to the State of Nebraska...
On a day where lax accountability and reckless borrow and spend policies in Washington are in the forefront of the nation's mind, this 30 second video summarizing four years of broken government encapsulates the need for change in Washington:

Tomorrow night, as Nebraskan families sit down to watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, my campaign is going to launch the first ad of the Senate general election cycle in homes across the state.
Significantly, we are going up on TV before my opponent. We will have the airwaves to ourselves, and we've crafted an ad to take advantage of the moment. This ad, called "Future," will introduce me to Nebraskans as a father and a candidate for United States Senate...
Before you read anything else I have to say tonight, I'd like to invite you to take five minutes to watch a video:
This video says what I can't always find the words for myself: that this campaign is about something much bigger than just me or my opponent. It's about the people we've met and the communities we've visited over these last several months.
The people of Nebraska are the heart and soul of our campaign.
Incredible, simply incredible. What we thought would take us a week turned out to take only a weekend. We're happy to announce that due to the overwhelming response to our "Picture is Worth a Million Dollars" challenge, our campaign has now raised over one million dollars since February.
For all that you've done to help us in that effort, I can only say: thank you.
When I heard that we were closing in on our first million dollars raised, I started thinking about all the thousands of Nebraskans who have opened their homes and their hearts to this campaign. And honestly, I just couldn't think of a way to say "thank you" enough. So to mark this significant milestone, I've decided to offer a little something special to the donor who pushes us past the million dollar mark.
I wanted you to be the first to hear the good news: thanks to your contributions, our grassroots campaign has managed to shatter expectations and outraise our opponent, a former two-term Governor and Bush Cabinet member, for the most recent fundraising quarter. Make no mistakes about it - change is in the air here in Nebraska.
The Journal Star reports: "Democratic Senate candidate Scott Kleeb seems to be finding fundraising traction in this heavily Republican state, bringing in nearly $700,000 in the latest reporting period and besting Republican Mike Johanns for the first time."
This Friday, we celebrate 232 years of independence. We celebrate not only our country's independence - but the independent spirit we as Americans all share.
Independence Day isn't just about our past, it's also about our future. Our campaign is committed to practicing a new brand of politics, and that requires each of us to recommit ourselves to the principles our founding fathers fought for.
