Republican Pete Ricketts is wrapping up the last few days of his campaign for governor.
Ricketts won a crowded Republican primary and says that during this campaign, one issue stands out.
“I’ve been campaigning for about 14 months now and the number one issue people talk to me about no matter where I go is property taxes. Whether you’re a farmer, or a rancher, or a homeowner, we all know our property taxes are too high,” Ricketts tells Kevin Thomas, host of Drive Time Lincoln on Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KLIN.
Ricketts says he might have pulled in some big endorsements in his campaign for governor, but only one counts.
“Well, ultimately the endorsement I’m seeking is from the Nebraska voters themselves,” Ricketts says. “That’s the endorsement that counts the most and that’s what I’m working very, very hard to achieve is get out and talk to as many people as possible so I can earn their vote.”
Ricketts’ opponent, Democrat Chuck Hassebrook, is also campaigning throughout Nebraska prior to Election Day.
