Heineman headlines Madison County, NE GOP convention


Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman only has a few more months left in office. Term-limited, he can't run for governor again.

That didn't stop him from telling Republicans, in Norfolk, Nebraska, that gubernatorial nominee Pete Ricketts is the man for the job.

At the Madison County Republican convention, tonight, Heineman provided the keynote address. In it, he focused on the strength of the GOP following a contested primary. "We had four candidates, good candidates, running for the United States Senate," said Gov. Dave Heineman, (R) Nebraska. "Ben Sasse won the primary. Six running for governor. Pete Ricketts won that primary. The other side had one candidate each for senate and governor and that's why we're stronger."

Heineman also took time to thank the audience for their support during his time as governor.
