A north Omaha woman says she will join a high-profile race for a seat in the Nebraska Legislature.
Susan Smith said in a news release that she will announce her official entry Saturday into the race for the District 11 seat held by incumbent Senator Brenda Council.
Council also faces a challenge from former Omaha Senator Ernie Chambers, the longest-serving member of the Nebraska Legislature, who was forced to leave office in 2009 after voters enacted term limits for lawmakers. Chambers won more votes than Council in the two-way primary, but both are well-known in the district.
Smith, a self-described conservative, is the founder of the Nebraskans Advisory Group, which focuses on the negative effects of illegal immigration.
