Rep. Don Bacon announced Wednesday that he is planning to have his sixth town hall meeting next week at Omaha North High School.

Toning down the anger in the nation's political dialogue. That’s what Omaha Congressman Don Bacon believes should be the lesson from Charlottesville.

Rep. Bacon, who recently returned from a trip to Israel, said he finds all racism, white nationalists and bigots "repugnant," enflaming violence that's already rampant in society. Bacon called the killing of Heather Heyer and the political violence that gravely injured Steve Scalise "despicable." 

He said "eradicating racism and bigotry should not be a divisive political issue... but one we should all get behind and support."

You can ask Congressman Bacon questions at a town hall at 8:45 a.m. Aug. 26 at the high school.

It will be Rep. Bacon's sixth town hall community meeting, including one moderated by 3 News Now Anchor Craig Nigrelli at Millard West last spring.
