(AP) — Republican Pete Ricketts has raised nearly $1.4 million in his campaign for Nebraska governor.

The Omaha businessman announced Tuesday that he ended the final quarter of 2013 with nearly $932,000 in cash on hand, and no campaign debt.

Ricketts is competing in a six-way GOP primary to replace Gov. Dave Heineman, who is ineligible to run in 2014 because of term limits.

The total raised includes more than $1.3 million in in cash and $77,000 from in-kind contributions. Ricketts did not make a cash contribution to the campaign, but made in-kind contributions of nearly $2,000 for travel expenses and meals.

    Not a good chioce but this Wall street wolf will buy his way into being our new governor.

    He gave Wisconson Gov. Scott Walker $400,000 for his recall campaign. $1 million so start the Platte Institute ‘stink tank’.

    Not a good situation for the working class person.

      How much did the commies at the seiu give to defeat Walker nitwit? And how much did it cost the tax payers of Wisconsin to repair their state house after the seiu temper tantrums? I`m personally not for Ricketts, he`s for amnesty for illegals. But your little liberal canned criticisms won`t go unchallenged either. How sad for you that Nebraska isn`t a zombie liberal state and that nutjob liberal running for your team doesn`t stand a chance!
