Bruning, Ricketts make their case after Heineman endorsement

Attorney General Jon Bruning today (Wednesday) picked up endorsements in his campaign for governor from Omaha Mayor Jean Stothart and Governor Dave Heineman. Heineman says Bruning has the experience in state government for the job.

Bruning says the endorsements are like rocket fuel for his campaign.

Ricketts today picked up the endorsment of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. With today's endorsements, Rickets says the choice is now crystal clear: status quo and 'auto pilot' versus reform and growth.

Ricketts says as a "high tax state" Nebraska needs someone "with a different perspective, someone with business experience and new ideas."

Ricketts says as the former Chief Operating Officer of Ameritrade, he has the skills to work with people and gain a consensus on taxes and budget cuts.
