Ricketts Runs for Governor

Posted: Updated:

Pete Ricketts is putting three main issues in focus for his campaign.

He wants to improve education, create more and better–paying jobs, and wants to find more markets for Nebraska's agricultural products.

When asked about health care a big topic across the country right now he agrees with Governor Heinemann and does not support a state wide Medicaid expansion.

"I would also rather see those dollars go into things such as teaching kids how to read and while the federal government has promised to pay for all this we got to remember these are our tax dollars there talking about and also the federal government may not continue to pay this in the future," said Ricketts.

Ricketts says his strong business background will put him above the rest of the field.
