Lindstrom joins governor’s race

As we expected Brett Lindstrom has joined the race for governor.

The two-term Republican State Senator from Omaha announcing his bid with a video posted to social media.

In the video he notes his urban roots, growing up in Millard, along with the family farm in Oakland.

He also talks about his Big Red days, walking on to the football team and spending five years in the program.

And then several issues, first and foremost taxes.

Lindstrom joins two other Republicans already in the race.

NU Regent Jim Pillen and cattle king Charles Herbster.

And as News Channel Nebraska first reported, former Governor Dave Heineman is also expected to run.
