Independent-minded Jenkins makes campaign stop in Sidney


The only Independent currently running for a Nebraska seat in the U.S. Senate race thinks the two party system is hobbled by partisanship.

Jim Jenkins is a 5th generation Nebraska rancher who believes he can better relate to Nebraskans than anyone running for either major party.

Jenkins served on various statewide organizations including the Nebraska Ethanol Board. He was elected the president of the Nebraska Restaurant Association in 2004.
