The campaign for Republican gubernatorial candidate Pete Ricketts says the Omaha businessman has received a show of support from the Nebraska Cattlemen Association.
President Jeff Rudolph says the committee voted unanimously to support Ricketts, citing his support of the Nebraska beef community.
“I am honored to have the support of the Nebraska Cattlemen Association,” Ricketts said. “I am very excited about the future of agriculture in Nebraska, and I look forward to working with livestock producers across the state.”
Ricketts will go up against Democrat Chuck Hassebrook and Libertarian Mark Elworth in the general election this November.
