It was great to be in Grand Island, Nebraska, yesterday to support the bold conservative running for governor, Pete Ricketts!
It was a special honor to stand next to the legendary Kay Orr, the first Republican woman ever elected governor and a staunch ally of Ronald Reagan, who at his last state dinner sat Margaret Thatcher on his right and Kay Orr on his left. Thank you, Kay, for being a trailblazing governor and for supporting great Nebraska conservatives like Deb Fischer, Ben Sasse, and Pete Ricketts.
I’d also like to send a special thanks to Mary Hilton and her seven beautiful children who came all the way from Lincoln to attend yesterday’s event. You are the one who is bold, Mary! Your family is beautiful and was so patient to make the long trip! If they’d have let me, I would have spent all day getting to know you and your great family! Thank you for coming and for supporting Pete!
