LINCOLN — Two state senators, Carol Blood of Bellevue and Dan Quick of Grand Island, have announced their intention to seek reelection to their seats in the Nebraska Legislature .

Blood, a former Bellevue City Council member, was elected to the Legislature in 2016.

The 58-year-old registered Democrat in the officially nonpartisan Legislature said in a press release that she is seeking a second term so she can “continue to share the unique voices of the hard-working residents in District 3 and be sure their concerns are taken seriously.”
