The Nebraska Cattlemen Association is throwing their support behind gubernatorial nominee Pete Ricketts.
In a statement released this morning, Jeff Rudolph, president of the Nebraska Cattlemen, says the organization's Political Action Committee unanimously voted to support Pete Ricketts campaign.
He goes on to call Ricketts a staunch supporter of the Nebraska beef community.
Ricketts says one of his top priorities will be to help promote value-added ag opportunities that lead to economic growth throughout the state.
Ricketts will face democrat Chuck Hassebrook in the November election.
