"I am announcing today my candidacy for the governor of Nebraska," Mike Foley said.
Nebraska's state auditor Mike Foley is running for governor, making him the sixth candidate in the race and the fourth to represent the Republican party along with Charlie Janssen, Tom Carlson and Beau McCoy.
"He's a man who is pro–life, he is honest, he has integrity and he shows it every time he does anything for our state, which is a lot," Jan Frayser said.
Foley says he's concentrating on issues involving the HHS, expanding Nebraska's economy, agriculture and resource policies, and public policy issues.
Though Foley considers himself a conservative, he says some of his views lean little more independent.
"I'm willing to work with people across the aisle, I'm willing to make compromises when it's affective and appropriate to do so," he said.
But when it comes to controversial family issues, such as abortion, Foley is a staunch opponent after introducing five bills to the legislature that attempted to restrict or curtail abortions in Nebraska.
"Public policy issues associate with marriage and the protection of human life can be delicate issues. I'm not shy about addressing those issues as they arise questions," he said.
