PETE RICKETTS FOR GOVERNOR OF NEBRASKA! NEVER FEAR SUCCESS!
I was honored to make a special trip to the Cornhusker State today to
join fellow former governor Kay Orr in endorsing Pete Ricketts for
governor of Nebraska. While Pete’s opponents
in this race have made a career for themselves as politicians,
bureaucrats, or lobbyists, Pete spent his career in the private sector
helping grow his family’s successful business from the bottom up. I
believe in teaching kids to never fear success and in fact to look to
those who’ve ethically earned their success and emulate their work
ethic! This is how we grow business, recover industry, hire Americans,
and save our economy, and Pete proves this. The alternative is woeful
dependency on an inevitable sinking ship I call “Liberal Lunacy.” Pete
and his Nebraska family are an inspiring American success story, and now
Pete is dedicated to making sure America’s promise is there for future
generations to succeed and prosper.
Like so many other
commonsense conservatives, in the last eight years Pete has focused his
energy and resources into furthering the conservative cause in Nebraska
because he knows that in critical times like this we need fearless
patriots willing to lead. At a time when too many candidates are
opportunistic and unprincipled, Pete Ricketts stands apart because he is
running for the right reasons – to lead his state with a servant’s
heart and a firm reliance on the time-tested truths that have made this
One of Pete’s opponents is now recycling old
discredited attacks hatched up by the Democrats. Don’t be fooled by the
mudslinging coming from a candidate eager to distract voters away from
his own dodgy record. Pete’s position is clear: he opposes amnesty and
taxpayer funded benefits for illegal immigrants in any form and always
Pete has the business acumen, the moral integrity, and the
conservative common sense to lead Nebraska into a prosperous future. He
will join the other great conservative governors we’ve endorsed who are
showing Washington, D.C. how to balance a budget, reform entitlements,
save for the future, develop our resources, and grow jobs.
Pete Ricketts is the clear principled commonsense conservative choice in
this race, and I hope you’ll join me in lending him your support!
