Congressman Don Bacon is responding after a private event, slated for this upcoming weekend is cancelled. 

Congressman Bacon was supposed to speak to 30 middle and high school students from the local community about government.

A group called, Omaha Liberty Ladies and Homemakers for America organized it, but learned that Indivisible Omaha was going to show up and take over.

Congressman Don Bacon sent 3 News Now this statement Wednesday:

"I am thoroughly disheartened that certain groups and organizations feel it is their right to further their personal agendas by hijacking a privately organized and hosted event."
