Washington, D.C. – Members of the Nebraska delegation gathered for the Nebraska Breakfast and welcomed Rep. Mike Flood (R-NE) as the newest member of the delegation Wednesday morning. At the weekly breakfast, the members released the following statement:

“We are thrilled to welcome our new colleague to the delegation. The Nebraska delegation has a long history of working together on behalf of Nebraskans, and we look forward to working with Mike on issues important to the state,” said Senators Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Ben Sasse (R-NE) and Representatives Don Bacon (R-NE) and Adrian Smith (R-NE).


“I am honored and excited to join my colleagues at this week’s Nebraska Breakfast. For close to 80 years, this tradition has reflected the way Nebraskans get things done—by coming together and solving problems as neighbors,” said Rep. Flood. “Although I have only been in Washington for a short time, I appreciate that one of my first events as a member of Congress featured my constituents from back home. I’m excited to start working closely with my colleagues in Nebraska’s federal delegation, and to help carry on this wonderful tradition.”

Flood was sworn in as a member of the House of Representatives on Tuesday, July 12. A ceremonial photo can be found here. A photo of the delegation at the Nebraska Breakfast can be found here.
