Pete Ricketts (Republican)

A note about the candidate:

I am seeking a second term as governor to carry on the progress we've made over the last three years. I was elected to put my business experience to work growing Nebraska, creating opportunities for our young people, and making state government run more like a business. In my time in office, we’ve cut the growth of state spending by over 90 percent and eliminated about four percent of state government’s workforce. We have promoted Nebraska’s agricultural exports around the world and opened new markets for our ag commodities. We’ve led the nation in economic development projects per capita for two years in a row and attracted more than $1 billion in new investment and jobs. We're getting the job done, and this success has been felt by Nebraskans across the state. I'm particularly proud of our work to strengthen Nebraska's culture of life. State government should be a reflection of how we value life and the dignity of individuals. From signing multiple pro-life bills into law, to improving how our Department of Health and Human Services serves developmentally disabled Nebraskans, to working to stop the flow of taxpayer dollars to abortion providers, I'm working to advance these values.
