Flood Stays Out Of Race

Former Nebraska Legislative Speaker Mike Flood says he considered getting back in the race for governor after his wife’s health improved…and had set a deadline for making a decision public. . .

Flood had announced a run for governor in early November, but withdrew about a month later after Mandi Flood was diagnosed with breast cancer. Flood, a Republican state senator from Norfolk, served as Speaker of the Legislature from 2007 to 2012.  He says he has every reason to believe Mandi is cancer free. Still, he says he wants to be with his wife as she completes her treatment.

Mandi Flood has undergone chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. She will finish radiation treatment in about two weeks.
