Nebraska Governor's race sees another shakeup

Posted: Updated:

The Nebraska governor's race is seeing yet another shake-up with the departure of Republican state Senator Charlie Janssen and the possible entry of Attorney General Jon Bruning.
 
Janssen said Monday that he was withdrawing because he didn't see a clear path to victory in the GOP primary, which includes five other candidates.
 
His announcement came days after he reported $317,000 in campaign fundraising, the second-lowest in the field, and $74,000 in cash on hand. Omaha businessman Pete Ricketts led the pack with nearly $1.4 million raised and $932,000 in cash on hand.
 
It also follows news that Bruning may enter the race. If Bruning decides to run, it would open a race for Nebraska attorney general.
