Texas Tea Party Senator Endorses Pete Ricketts for Neb. Governor
Republican gubernatorial candidate, Pete Ricketts, is being endorsed by Texas Tea Party Senator, Ted Cruz. The conservative praised Ricketts for his experience as a businessman and his focus on taxes, job growth and education reform. Ricketts is competing in a six-way Republican primary race for Nebraska governor with State Auditor, Mike Foley; Omaha tax attorney, Bryan Slone; state senators, Tom Carlson and Beau McCoy; and Attorney General, Jon Bruning, who has picked up the endorsement of the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police. The 2,600 member law enforcement group says Bruning has remained a strong advocate for law enforcement throughout his public service career.
