Columbus, NE – Today, conservative farmer, businessman, and University of Nebraska Regent Jim Pillen announced his candidacy to be the 2022 Republican nominee for Governor of Nebraska.
“Our state is at a crossroads, and it’s never been more important to have principled, conservative leadership with a vision for Nebraska’s future,” said Pillen. “We have to fix our broken property-tax system, grow our economy statewide, and defend our principles and our way of life. The next decade will make all the difference, and I want to help keep Nebraska great so all our kids and grandkids can prosper. I’m humbled by this opportunity to serve, and I’ll work hard to make my case to every voter I can in the coming year. We’re excited to get started.”
In a campaign announcement video released today, Pillen discussed his roots in Nebraska agriculture and his commitment to protecting the values, freedoms, and unparalleled quality of life Nebraskans enjoy. “Nebraska represents the best of America, and this is where we make our stand,” he said.
