Central Nebraskans are key for any U.S. Senate candidate.
Republican contender Ben Sasse says that's why he's opening a campaign office in the area.
Sasse welcomed the public to the office opening in Kearney today.
"We're spending a ton of time out here, we have a campaign RV. My wife and I have 3 kids and we're spending about 40% of our time in the third district living off the bus." Said Sasse.
His main office is in his hometown of Fremont, and a second office is located in Lincoln.
Following his grand opening in Kearney, Sasse filed for office with the Buffalo County Election Commissioner.
