The past few months I have traveled to Broken Bow, Grand Island, Nebraska City, and other communities with Pete Ricketts supporting his campaign for governor.Along the way, I, along with other Nebraskans, have gotten to know Pete as a strong pro-life conservative who champions values all Nebraskans hold dear - values like hard work and personal responsibility.
Pete Ricketts has the background and character that we need in our next governor. During his time at his family's Nebraska-based business, Pete helped grow the company from about 150 employees to about 2,000 here in Nebraska and over 6,000 nationwide.
His collaborative personality, executive experience, and reputation of integrity set him apart in in the race for governor.
Nebraska is doing well because we have had strong leadership. If Nebraskans want to grow our economy and create new opportunities, however, we need someone like Pete Ricketts with a proven track record of success. Pete will put his experience to work shaking up state government, cutting spending, and providing meaningful tax relief.
We need Pete Ricketts as our next governor. Please join me in voting for him in the May 13 primary election.
