DeSantis, Pence and Cruz all coming to Nebraska for governor’s steak fry

NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. -- A trio of GOP firebrands is coming to Nebraska. Former Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis are scheduled to be in the Cornhusker State for Gov. Pete Ricketts' annual steak fry next month.

The high-profile Republicans will appear at the gathering to celebrate agriculture on September 12 in Nebraska City. All three are viewed as potential 2024 presidential candidates.

DeSantis has recently pushed to curb mask mandates in schools despite the spread of the highly infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus. His policies have been at odds with the White House and Democratic President Joe Biden.

The governor's steak fry will take place at Arbor Lodge Historical Park.
