Heineman expected to endorse Bruning in governor's race

Posted: Updated:
A campaign aide says Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman is set to endorse Attorney General Jon Bruning in the hotly contested Republican primary race for governor.
Bruning campaign manager Jordan McCrain says Heineman will throw his support behind the three-term attorney general at a press conference Wednesday in Omaha.
The announcement is potentially huge for Bruning, who has been locked in a tight, six-man GOP primary race. Heineman, the state's longest-serving governor and a popular Republican figure in Nebraska, had previously said he might endorse in the race.
The other candidates are Omaha businessman Pete Ricketts, Omaha tax attorney Bryan Slone, State Auditor Mike Foley and state Sens. Tom Carlson of Holdrege and Beau McCoy of Omaha.
