Ricketts Responds to Secretary of State Decision

The Ricketts campaign today responded to Secretary of State John Gale’s decision to place Mike Foley’s name on the ballot as Ricketts’ running mate for lieutenant governor.


“We feel this is a sound decision,” said Ricketts campaign manager Matt Miltenberger.  “The State’s Constitution is clear: Nebraskans have given gubernatorial candidates the right to designate their running mates.   In this case, the ballot can now be certified in a manner that accurately reflects the choices before Nebraska voters.”
