Duty, Honor, Courage

"Duty, honor, country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.”

Nebraska Backs the Blue 100%

The Good Life we all enjoy is made possible by the courageous men and women in blue. After traveling the state for the past 7 ½ years as Governor, I know Nebraskans appreciate all that law enforcement does to keep them safe.

Fairness in the Cattle Market

As Nebraskans know well, we are the beef state. We have every segment of the supply chain from cowcalf producers, to backgrounders, to large and small feed yards and also three of the four big packers in the state.
