Woody Bradford, a candidate for Omaha's school board, gained another big-name endorsement Monday.
His campaign announced that former Nebraska Gov. Bob Kerrey, a Democrat, supports Bradford's run for the Subdistrict 3 spot on the board of Omaha Public Schools.
Last week Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman endorsed Bradford. Heineman is the state's top Republican. Bradford is a registered independent.
Bradford's opponent, current OPS board President Marian Fey, is a registered Democrat.
Fey's campaign noted her endorsements in a tweet Monday morning. “Marian Fey is endorsed by the Omaha Education Association, the Nebraska State Education Association, and the Omaha World Herald. #oma13” read a tweet from Fey's Twitter account, @MarianFey.
The World-Herald's editorial page endorsed both Fey and Bradford when five candidates were trying to advance in Subdistrict 3 from the April primary. But in an editorial published Monday, The World-Herald endorsed Bradford for the May 14 election.
After The World-Herald left messages with Fey about her campaign's tweet, the tweet was deleted and a new one was posted, correctly listing her endorsements.
“Marian Fey,” it read, “is endorsed by the Omaha Education Association & the Nebraska State Education Association. #oma13”
