The hope of the governor of Nebraska, Thibodeau, announces a running mate | Regional government
Republican Nebraska Governor hopeful Theresa Thibodeau has chosen a central Nebraska rancher and a conservative radio host as his running mate.
Thibodeau announced Thursday that she would be running on a ticket with Trent Loos, a sixth-generation rancher and longtime agriculture advocate.
Thibodeau, a former state senator and former daycare owner from Omaha, said in a statement that she and Loos would work together to bridge the gap between urban and rural Nebraska. She said her conversations with Nebraska voters made it clear that a “one-size-fits-all approach won’t solve Nebraska’s problems.”
Loos lives in Litchfield, a village in Sherman County about 34 miles north of Kearney. He serves on the Nebraska Capitol Commission, where Governor Pete Ricketts appointed him to help oversee the preservation of the state capitol. He also served on former President Donald Trump’s agricultural advisory committee.
