We are here to give our awards for the 4th of July parades!
We received a number of pics, and then we went ahead and took some from a couple campaigns who didn’t send them in (we found ’em online — if any campaign wants them taken down, please let us know).
The categories are:
Most Creative Float
Largest Float Presence (most people walking, etc.)
Most Grueling Schedule (by an individual candidate or office holder)
Best Overall Entry
First however, we’re going to show a few uncategorized pics.
We have Mike McGowan for MUD Board, walking (on a surgically repaired knee) in the Ralston parade. Nice touch with the hats (on the volunteers) as well.
Next we have Charlie Janssen for Legislature from LD #15, running through the Hooper parade. Like many candidates and staff, Janssen is hustling to shake every hand and pass out every sticker.
Into the Congressional races…
1st District Congressman Jeff Fortenberry in Seward.
2nd District Congressman Lee Terry at the JE George Parade in Omaha.
2nd District Democrat challenger Jim Esch in Ralston.
3rd District Congressman Adrian Smith in Geneva.
Democrat Senate candidate Scott Kleeb in Seward
Republican Senate candidate Mike Johanns in Central City
These are not all the photos we have — you’ll be seeing more soon.
(And, in theory, if your campaign has another or a better photo to add, we’ll take a look.)
We’ll break down the awards at 11:00, 12:00, 1:00 and 2:00 Central today, so be sure to check back!
