A Falls City businessman may have made history today in Nebraska, pouring about $860,000 in cash and campaign resources into the fledging gubernatorial campaign of Republican Beau McCoy.
Charles Herbster, a short-lived governor’s candidate earlier this year, transferred $594,000 in cash from his campaign committee to McCoy’s campaign. He also donated $265,000 in campaign assets, such as the services of political consultants who had been paid upfront.
