Jerry Kratochvil interviews political consultant Jordan McGrain in a very special Back to School episode.

Jerry and Jordan first discuss Governor Pete Ricketts’ appointment of Nicole Fox to the District 7 Legislative seat in the Nebraska Legislature. They talk about her background in politics, and her chances for victory when she runs in 2016.

They then talk about the 2nd District Congressional seat, and the current two-man GOP race in what many thought would be a crowded field. They discuss who could yet get into the race, and what the deadlines may be for an unknown or non-self-funding candidate to get in the race.

Jordan then talks a little about a group he is connected to —, and their work in changing laws regarding alternative schools for kids around the country. They also delve into the discussion of whether Charter Schools would be effective in Nebraska, and some differences he may have with Millard Public School Board member, Mike Kennedy.

Finally Jordan takes part in the first Wheels Down Politics game: Back to School with Nebraska Politics. Can Jordan score a passing grade? Or will he have to go…Back to School!
