Tom Osborne Enodrses Foley in Governor's Race

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - State Auditor Mike Foley has won the support of former Husker football coach Tom Osborne in his campaign for Nebraska governor.  Foley, a Republican, announced the endorsement on Tuesday. In a statement, Osborne called Foley "an honorable man who cannot be bought," and praised his work as a government-spending watchdog.  Osborne led the Huskers for 25 years and helped guide the team to three national championships. He served in Congress from 2001 to 2007, representing the 3rd district in western and central Nebraska. Osborne ran for governor himself in 2006, but lost in the Republican primary to Gov. Dave Heineman.  The Republican race also includes Attorney General Jon Bruning, Omaha businessman Pete Ricketts, Omaha tax attorney Bryan Slone, and state Sens. Beau McCoy of Omaha and Tom Carlson of Holdrege.
