Bruning Endorsed by Nebraska Police Group

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Attorney General Jon Bruning has won the endorsement of the Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police in his primary campaign for governor.  The group announced its support for Bruning on Monday, saying he has remained a strong advocate for law enforcement throughout his public service career. The Nebraska Fraternal Order of Police represents more than 2,600 law enforcement professionals throughout Nebraska.  Bruning has served as Attorney General since 2003, and has worked with the Legislature to pass dozens of bills designed to reduce crime. This year, his legislative proposals included an expanded ban on the popular synthetic street drug known as K2. He also has been endorsed by 119 Nebraska county sheriffs and police chiefs.  Bruning is competing in a six-man Republican primary race to replace Gov. Dave Heineman.
