Omaha's own Warren Buffett introduced Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at Omaha North High School on Monday afternoon.

Buffett criticized GOP nominee Donald Trump for breaking with decades of presidential campaign tradition by keeping secret documents that can reveal much about a candidate's charitable giving, assets and spending priorities. Trump says he'll release the returns after the IRS is finished auditing him.

But Buffett suggested the real reason is fear, saying, "You're only afraid if you have something to be afraid of."

He added that he would be "delighted" to meet Trump between now and the election. Buffett says, "I'll bring my tax return, he'll bring his tax return... and just let people ask us questions."

Clinton has released eight years of recent tax filings.

Buffett also introduced a new website for Douglas and Sapry County voters called drive2vote.com

Buffett has pledged to take at least 10 people to the voting polls in November who have difficulties getting there.

His goal is for Douglas County and Sapry County to have the highest turnout percentage of any district in the country.
