State Auditor Mike Foley has committed himself to the Nebraska governor’s race, ruling out speculation that he might seek re-election.
Foley is one of six GOP candidates looking to replace Gov. Dave Heineman, who will leave office next year because of term limits.
Foley says he wanted to end rumors that he might run for re-election as auditor.
His announcement comes days after Attorney General Jon Bruning announced that he will run for governor.
Foley has served as auditor for eight years, and likely would have sailed to a third term if he had run for re-election.
