OMAHA, Neb. (AP) â€” True to his word, Gov. Pete Ricketts has again donated his own money to a group trying to save Nebraska's death penalty.
A monthly financial statement released Friday by Nebraskans for the Death Penalty shows Ricketts donated $100,000 to the group sometime in the last month. That matches his $100,000 donation to the group in June, for a total of $200,000.
In all, the group raised nearly $400,000 in cash for July. The largest donation for the month came from the conservative, Washington-based Judicial Crisis Network, which gave $200,000.
