Korey L. Reiman was a 2012 Democratic candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 1st Congressional District of Nebraska. He lost to Republican incumbent Jeff Fortenberry in the November 6, 2012, general election.[1]


Reiman grew up on a farm in rural Pawnee County. After graduating from Peru State College, where he played football and obtained a teachers degree, he obtained his J.D. from the University of Nebraska Law College. During his second year of law school, he represented disabled veterans seeking disability benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. In 2004, Reiman started his own practice.[2]


Campaign themes


On his campaign website, Reiman lists five issues. They are:[3]

  • Save Medicare
  • On his website, Reiman says, "One year ago the current Congressman voted to privatize Medicare and end the secured health care for our seniors. Most experts noted the cost of health care/insurance would out pace the voucher system voted on by the current Congressman, thereby leaving the majority looking to find ways to even afford this insurance."
  • Jobs and Economy
  • On his website, Reiman says, "A reasonable corporate tax rate which promotes job growth; funding jobs which advance energy independence are the correct course for our Country. The Government should create jobs to advance energy independence which reduces our dependence on oil."
  • Women's Health
  • On his website, Reiman says, "The current Congressman would rather defund the program, thereby leaving many women no ability to obtain contraceptives, disease prevention, and cancer screening. Korey Reiman believes funding of Planned Parenthood is important to reducing disease, unwanted pregnancy, and early detection of cancer."
  • Call for Representation
  • On his website, Reiman says, "While a person's beliefs are very important to guide them in their decisions, as a Representative of such a diverse population with various faiths, that Representative should consider other viewpoints. Korey Reiman is guided by faith, however believes that when the Federal Government enacts laws, it must treat people fairly."
  • Healthcare
  • On his website, Reiman says, "The Affordable Care Act lays a new foundation for our country that will bring additional security and stability to the American people for generations to come. Now that the foundation has been laid, it is time for reasonable law makers, who are willing to listen to all ideas, build upon that foundation. Reasonable people agreed the old uncontrolled system was monetarily unsustainable. While the current Congressman would completely repeal the Act, the correct action is improve it."[3]
