Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump speaks at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland tonight. Governor Pete Ricketts will be listening closely.
Ricketts says voters face a decision this fall and part of the Republican strategy will be making the case against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
“But I do think Donald Trump needs to come out and make the case for why he would be a better president,” Ricketts tells Nebraska Radio Network in a telephone interview from Cleveland.
Ricketts says he wants to hear Trump state how his experience in business will make government better.
As for the upcoming campaign…
“Well, if the past is any indication of what the future might bring, I think it’s going to be a very raucous campaign,” Ricketts says. “I think you’ve got two candidates who are very passionate and two candidates who are very competitive and so I would expect this to be a very, very tough campaign all the way around.”
