Nebraska Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy has filed paperwork to run for governor in the May 2014 Republican primary.
The lieutenant governor formed the "Sheehy for Governor" political committee in a filing with the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission.
The commission's website says Sheehy filed the statement of organization last week. State law requires candidates to file if they raise, receive or spend more than $5,000. The filing says Sheehy cleared that threshold on Nov. 28.
Sheehy was sworn in as lieutenant governor in January 2005. The
former Hastings mayor confirmed in July that he was running, and
has since won an endorsement from Gov. Dave Heineman.
