An Omaha tax attorney has joined the 2014 race for Nebraska governor.

Bryan Slone announced his bid Saturday in Gering, where he graduated from high school. Slone is the sixth Republican candidate to enter the primary race. Gov. Dave Heineman is ineligible to seek re-election because of term limits.

Slone is a former Regan administration tax lawyer, and he recently retired from a prominent Omaha accounting office.

Slone earned his bachelor's and law degrees from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He says he was born in Wayne and grew up in small towns throughout the state, including Laurel, Neligh, Crete, Gordon and Gering.

The 56-year-old says he would focus on lowering taxes and promoting economic growth if elected.
