Tax Relief for the Middle Class
- Excerpt:"By supporting real property tax relief and tax cuts for our seniors, Senator Nordquist has aggressively pursued an agenda to reduce the tax burden on Nebraska's middle class and retirees."
Health Care for Working Families
- Excerpt:"Too many Nebraskans are uninsured and don't have the access to health care that they deserve. Others find high insurance premiums make it extremely difficult to make ends meet. Senator Nordquist is working to find ways to increase access and quality of health care without raising taxes on Nebraska families."
Education for the 21st Century
- Excerpt:"Senator Nordquist understands that we need to provide our children with an education that prepares our children to compete for jobs in a technology-driven 21st century economy."
Safer Neighborhoods for our Families
- Excerpt:"No Nebraska family should have to live in fear of crime in their neighborhoods. Senator Nordquist has worked with other members of the Legislature to increase punishments for violent offenders and create programs to stop violent crime before it happens."
Cleaner Energy for our Environment
- Excerpt:"Producing clean, renewable energy should be a priority for all Nebraskans. By investing in renewable resources, we can reduce our dependence on foreign oil, reduce the pollutants we put into our air and water, and create good, high-paying jobs."

Nordquist won re-election in the 2012 election for Nebraska State Senate District 7. Nordquist advanced past the May 15 primary election and defeated Christopher Geary in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
|Nebraska State Senate, District 7, General Election, 2012|
|Nonpartisan||Jeremy Nordquist Incumbent||70.1%||4,211|
|Nebraska State Senate District 7 Nonpartisan Primary Nonpartisan Primary, 2012|
|Jeremiah J. Nordquist Incumbent||72.7%||1,406|
|Christopher N. Geary||17.8%||345|
|Adrian S. Petrescu||9.5%||183|
Following the primary, Geary contacted Nordquist by e-mail, offering to remove his name from the general election ballot in exchange for payment of his campaign debts. Nordquist refused, and the legality of the proposal was questioned. Geary claimed that the Accountability and Disclosure Commission had given him the green light as long as campaign funds were not used, to which its executive director replied, "Rubbish." While state election law prohibits withdrawing from a primary election in exchange from money, it does not cover general elections. Douglas County attorney Don Kleine said that the proposal possibly fit the state bribery statute.
