(AP) — State Auditor Mike Foley has committed himself to the Nebraska governor’s race, ruling out speculation that he might seek re-election.

Foley filed for governor on Wednesday, saying he was going to “put it all on the line” in the crowded Republican primary race. Foley is one of six GOP candidates looking to replace Gov. Dave Heineman, who will leave office next year because of term limits.

Foley filed ahead of the Tuesday deadline, saying 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.
