A little-known IT manager from Omaha has been making the rounds of the state, seeking to shake up the race for the Republican nomination to become Nebraska’s next governor.

Breland Ridenour stopped in the Panhandle over the past weekend, meeting with local party members and the public to discuss his candidacy.

At the Rural Radio Scottsbluff studios, Ridenour explained he made the decision to run because he hasn’t seen other candidates that, in his opinion, best represent the interests of the state, or himself as a native Nebraskan.”Those are candidates that have a really strong backbone, that are willing to say what needs to be said and do what needs to be done. I think that’s for a number of reasons,” said Ridenour. “And reputation can affect that, whether it be a corporate or business reputation, or whether it be a political reputation. And I not having any of those, am free to speak and do what needs to be done without pulling any punches.”

Ridenour says like other GOP gubernatorial candidates, he’s opposed to Critical Race Theory, the draft sex education standards as proposed by the Nebraska Education Department, and the Biden ’30 by 30′ plan, but he takes a 360-degree view of the issues, meaning he looks to find the common agenda behind them, and identify problems at the source in an effort to find solutions.
