Candidate Tours Region

Pete Ricketts, a republican candidate for governor in Nebraska is on the road this week, touring ag and manufacturing locations.

He says any Governor has to focus on more than Omaha and Lincoln…

Rickets was making stops in Norfolk, Neligh and O’Neill in northeast and north central Nebraska. He says property taxes are top of mind in rural areas, and he found that out right after he announced his run…

Ricketts says the ag economy is the backbone of the state, and should be a state priority…

Rickets is one of five republicans running for the nomination. Current Governor Dave Heineman is wrapping up the second of his two terms.
