Businessman Steve Forbes has announced that he is endorsing Shane Osborn in his run for U.S. Senate.
is chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media and currently serves on the
board of directors for the Heritage Foundation, the Ronald Reagan Presidential
Foundation, and the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.
Forbes says Osborn is the "one true conservative in this race."
Osborn kicked off his campaign in Grand Island this past July saying he is the man to fix all of President Barack Obama's wrongs.
Forbes said about Osborn, "He was at the forefront of government
transparency and accountability as Nebraska State Treasurer and stood tall
against Dodd-Frank and Obamacare."
"I can think of no greater infringement
on liberty than Obamacare and Shane has always been opposed to its creation," added Forbes.
Forbes says the Senate needs a post 9/11 combat veteran in its ranks, and he says Osborn would be the perfect person to represent that group.
