Omaha Attorney Brian Buescher Announces Run for Attorney General

Posted: Updated:

Omaha attorney Brian Buescher has announced plans to file for attorney general.

Buescher, who leads the Agribusiness Litigation group in the Omaha-based law firm of Kutak Rock LLP and is a former domestic violence prosecutor for the Douglas County Attorney's Office, says he will officially file next week.

Buescher says if elected, he would focus on keeping violent criminals behind bars, advocating for changes to Nebraska's "good time" law, and fighting federal regulations he says are "overreaching."

Buescher will compete against Lincoln attorneys Mike Hilgers and Doug Peterson and state Sen. Pete Pirsch in the Republican primary.

This year's race is the first contested primary for Republicans since 1990, when Don Stenberg defeated then-Lancaster County Attorney Mike Heavican and Lincoln attorney John DeCamp for the job.

Fremont attorney Janet Stewart is running unopposed in the Democratic primary.
