Report: Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts to Endorse Donald Trump

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, whose family funded anti-Trump efforts, is now expected to endorse the presumed Republican nominee at a campaign rally in Omaha, Nebraska on Friday.

“Governor Ricketts will appear with Donald Trump in Omaha tomorrow,” Ricketts’ spokesperson Taylor Gage stated, according to the Wall Street Journal. “The governor has always said he will support the GOP nominee to retake the White House. The governor is supporting Donald Trump as the presumptive GOP nominee.”

The endorsement is a surprise because the Ricketts family helped fund Our Principles PAC, a Super PAC started by a former Mitt Romney staffer, which was dedicated to stopping Trump from becoming the nominee. Trump warned the Ricketts family last February because of the anti-Trump efforts, saying, “be careful, they have a lot to hide.”
