(Undated) -- The Nebraska State Patrol is investigating threats against two Nebraska Democrats.

The NSP says they received information from the Sarpy County Sheriff's Office about threats against the family of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Carol Blood and Nebraska Democratic Party chair Jane Kleeb.

Kleeb posted texts from an anonymous number claiming to have testimony from about a hundred people that had been mistreated by either Kleeb's or Blood's families. She said in a follow-up tweet that the threats came from fellow Democrats.

The texts say that the information would be made public if either one chose to run for governor. Blood launched her campaign last month; no new information has come out since.

NSP says they've handed over the information to the Adams County Attorney, since the texts were received there. They say no arrests have been made at this time.
