Bruning Says Second Close Loss "Hurts"
UNDATED - Another state-wide primary – another close loss for Jon Bruning. Two years ago, Bruning came up short in the primary race for U.S. Senate against Deb Fischer. Last night, he conceded defeat to Omaha businessman Pete Ricketts in the Republican gubernatorial primary. Bruning talked with supporters last night at a campaign watch party in Lincoln. Bruning is completing his third term as Nebraska Attorney General. He recently underwent successful treatment for colon cancer.
