Pete Ricketts will bring principled leadership to Washington.

LINCOLN, Neb. – Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska (AFP-NE) today congratulated former Governor Pete Ricketts on his appointment to the U.S. Senate, filling the seat recently vacated by Senator Ben Sasse.

AFP-NE State Director Jessica Shelburn issued the following statement:

“Our activists are excited to support and congratulate Gov. Ricketts as he continues his service to Nebraskans by representing the people of Nebraska in the U.S. Senate. Not only does Senator Ricketts have a proven track record of standing up for our communities, but he has prioritized growing our economy, expanding access to health care, and increasing educational opportunities, making it easier for our families and businesses to succeed.

“Under his leadership, unemployment rates plummeted, state spending has been slashed by nearly half, and the largest tax cuts in state history have been signed into law. We look forward to our continued partnership and are confident Senator Ricketts will continue to serve in the best interest of Nebraskans and stand up to Washington’s harmful top-down policies.”
