U.S. Senate candidate Dave Domina has picked up an endorsement from Nebraska’s Latino community.
The Latino/a PAC of Nebraska, an organization dedicated to bolstering the group’s political voice, unanimously endorsed Domina, said spokeswoman Athena Ramos. The Democratic candidate announced the endorsement Wednesday in Schuyler.
Ramos said Domina embraces the group’s values of family, hard work, inclusion and building community.
“There is a misperception that Latino issues are somehow different,” she said. “Latinos care about improving life for all Nebraskans and all people living in our country. Health, education, economic prosperity and the opportunity to achieve the American Dream — those are our issues, and those are America’s issues.’’
Domina has advocated for immigration reform, including a prompt pathway to full citizenship for undocumented people. He also favors reunification of the families divided by the immigration process.
Domina is running against Republican Ben Sasse and independent candidates Jim Jenkins and Todd Watson.
