"I think my focus on education sets me apart from other candidates. You know, we need to invest in our future if we are going to have a future," said Hassebrook.

Hassebrook not flinching on tough issues

Chuck Hassebrook is going full-time as a gubernatorial candidate in 10 days, and he's not going to be dodging issues during the eight-month journey to May's Democratic primary election.

Hassebrook says he opposes tax policy proposals that would reduce Nebraska's top personal income tax rate and supports stalled legislation that would authorize state participation in Medicaid expansion over Gov. Dave Heineman's strenuous objections.

No hesitation. No artful dodging. No flinching.
