Mike Flood (b. February 23, 1975) is a former Speaker of the Nebraska Unicameral, representing District 19 from 2005 to 2013.

Flood has professional experience as both a lawyer and a broadcaster. He was known as a radio personality for Lincoln’s Froggy 98 country station.[1]

Flood earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1997, and his Juris Doctor from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 2001.

Flood has a history of involvement with a number of organizations, including the Lavitsef, Incorporated, Madison Community Club, Madison County Agricultural Society, Madison County Bar Association, Madison County Red Cross, Nebraska Broadcasters Association, Nebraska County Bar Association, Norfolk Community Healthcare Clinic, Norfolk Rotary Club, and the Norfolk Youth Leadership Council.

Flood was highlighted by Time Magazine as one of 40 leaders under the age of 40 considered "rising stars of American politics."[2]



On November 12, 2012, Flood announced his intent to seek the Republican nomination for Governor of Nebraska in 2014 when incumbent Dave Heineman is prevented by term limits from running for re-election.[3] Then on December 6th of the same year, Flood withdrew his bid after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer.[4] In July 2013, Flood announced that, even though his wife was finishing cancer treatment and was considered to be cancer-free, he would not return to the race as a precautionary measure.[5]


On November 4, 2008, Flood won re-election to the 19th District Seat in the Nebraska Senate, defeating Daniel Barrows.[6]
