Gov. Dave Heineman will appoint a new Lt. Governor today at a 3:30 news conference
The news conference will be held in the Governor's Hearing Room at the State Capitol.
This announcement comes not two weeks after Rick Sheehy resigned from the post after The World-Herald contacted him about the improper phone calls he made to four women, other than his wife, during the past four years.
Sheehy served eight years in the post before resigning.
Several names have come to the forefront as possible replacements, including former State Sens. Tony Fulton of Lincoln, Chris Langemeier of Schuyler and Phil Erdman of Lincoln.
Other possible contenders mentioned include Bellevue Mayor Rita Sanders.

Live stream will begin at 3:30 p.m.
