LINCOLN -- Two Republican former governors are supporting a current republican running for governor. Kay Orr and Charlie Thone are speaking up in support of Pete Ricketts. Orr says she chose Ricketts because of his experience as an Omaha businessman and a fiscal conservative. In a statement, Thone says Ricketts would bring his private-sector experience to state government if elected. There are five Republican candidates running for governor to succeed Governor Heineman, who cannot run because of term limits.
