Sen. Charlie Janssen Announces Intent to Run for Governor

Sen. Charlie Janssen

Fremont Senator Charlie Janssen has announced his plans to run for governor in 2014.

Janssen says he is running to keep Nebraska's conservative values alive. His plans if elected as governor include limiting government and growing the business sector.

The Republican state senator is known for his strong opposition to illegal immigration. He also has introduced guns-rights bills this year and is trying to end state-funded prenatal care coverage for illegal immigrants.

He says his decision to run was not swayed by former Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy's recent exit from the 2014 race.
