Congressman Don Bacon talks about his first 100 days

May 18, 2017

The Omaha Press Club held a special Noon Forum earlier this week focused on Congressman Don Bacon and his first 100 days in office.


Bacon is a freshman congressman who represents Omaha’s second congressional district and is a member of the republican majority. 

At the Noon Forum he spoke about his priorities and what he thinks the majority can accomplish.  

He spoke about his priorities and whether he favors having a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia.

Bacon was also asked what impressed and disappointed him the most about the House of Representatives.

"When you’re in a group like this, Republicans and Democrats, we all get along wonderfully well.  In fact, the freshmen Republicans and Democrats get along well together.  In fact. we socialize together so that’s a positive thing.  I think the collegiality in private is better than I thought it would be.  I would say you get people behind a mic and you get the more partisan side of it.  But on a one-to-one basis, we get along really well.”

Bacon says, from his perspective, the Russians are aiming to undermine the United States’ electoral process and he thinks everyone needs to be aware of that.
