Janet Stewart says she won't use Attorney General's office as political stepping stone

Posted: Updated:
Nebraska woman says she's ready to put her litigation and law experience to work as the state's next Attorney General. 

Fremont native Janet Stewart is looking to take over Jon Bunning's seat as Nebraska's next Attorney General. 

The democratic candidate says she's right for the job because she has three decades of legal experience to back her up. 

Stewart the 24 years she spent spearheading the Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company has given her the leadership and management skills to effectively run the office. 

Stewart also says she's best for the job because she won't use the Attorney General's seat as a stepping stone to advance her political career.

"Because I have spent 30 years practicing law, and I am a little bit older, I dont have any aspirations to run for any other political office," Stewart said. "That's not something that's on my radar screen at all. I would end my career as being Nebraska's Attorney General, and I think because of that you can really focus on being a hard working attorney and make your decisions based strictly on the law and not look to your future ambitions or any other political perspective in doing that."

Stewart is facing off against one other Democrat, and four Republican candidates in the Attorney General's race.
