LINCOLN — One state senator, Charlie Janssen of Fremont, is expected on Monday to announce his plans to run for governor, while another lawmaker, Steve Lathrop of Omaha, said he's very seriously considering the race.
The contest for the governor's job in 2014 was thrown wide open by the recent resignation of Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy, who had been considered the front-runner and has already returned the $200,000 in campaign donations he had amassed.
