Gov. Dave Heineman isn’t ready to talk about his future, yet.
Heineman has a little more than a month left on his 10-year tenure as governor. He insists his focus is on his current job, not on any future jobs.
“This job is very time consuming and as I’ve shared with the governor-elect, all the way through January 7th I have the responsibility for everything the governor is supposed to do in this state and we’re not going to let up,” Heineman tells reporters. “We’re going to finish strong.”
Heineman, a Republican, declined to run for the United States Senate. He expressed interest in the University of Nebraska presidency, but wasn’t chosen as a finalist.
He says he plans to finish strong.
“You know, on January 8th, I’ll try to figure out what the future holds,” Heineman says. “But I know this, I love our state and I’m going to continue to do some things that will move the state forward.”
Heineman has been governor for 10 years. He could not run for re-election due to term limits.
