Saturday, Krystal Gabel announced she will challenge Governor Pete Ricketts for the Republican bid in the 2018 Nebraska Republican Primary.

According to a news release, Gabel’s platform includes:

• Expand Nebraska’s stake in agriculture to allow growth and cultivation of industrial hemp for commercial purposes by local producers.

• Address the state’s tax dilemma by making Nebraska the primary producer and manufacturer of hemp biofuel and biodiesel.

• Build a Beginning Farmers program that attracts and assists individuals, families, small businesses, ranchers, and farmers to expand in our agricultural industry.

• Provide a medical cannabis program that allows the purchase and/or grow of medical-strength cannabis for in-state adult patients, child patients with guardian’s permission, and veterans via a medical card.

• Fully decriminalize cannabis for adults and revisit cannabis laws that fine, penalize, incarcerate, and criminalize those who possess cannabis.

• Re-invest in our public K-12 education and equally invest in all Nebraska residents.

• Focus on affordable healthcare and improved domestic violence services for all Nebraskans.

• Improve transparency in the Governor’s office with more avenues of conversation with Nebraska constituents.

Governor Pete Rickets and Nebraska state Sen. Bob Krist have both announced bids for the Governor's seat. Sen. Krist says he plans to leave the Republican Party and run as a third-party candidate.
