(AP) Nebraska Secretary of State John Gale is launching his 2014 re-election bid.

Gale announced plans Thursday to hold events in Lincoln, Grand Island, North Platte and Scottsbluff next week.

Gale, a Republican, has served as Nebraska's Secretary of State since 2000, when he was appointed by then-Gov. Mike Johanns. He was elected to three additional terms.

The 72-year-old Gale practiced law in North Platte for 29 years before he was appointed to office. He also worked as a legislative assistant to former U.S. Sen. Roman Hruska of Nebraska, and as an assistant U.S. attorney in Omaha and Lincoln.

He and his wife, Carol, have three children.
