Sen. Carol Blood of Bellevue announced Wednesday that she will seek reelection to the Legislature in 2020.

Blood, who represents District 3, said her second-term priorities would be to "continue to remove hurdles to employment and create better job opportunities" while working to "maintain Nebraska's strong education system at all levels."

Another legislative goal would be to "continue to find ways to balance the current tax system while generating additional revenue sources that do not come out of the taxpayers' pockets."

Blood said her constituents are "sick of the bipartisan bickering and dirty tricks at all levels of government and do not want their local representatives participating in the shenanigans that ultimately prevent good policy from moving ahead."

The 3rd District includes portions of Bellevue and Papillion.

Blood is a registered Democrat.
