Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts is throwing his support behind presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying the Republican Party needs to unite behind the candidate.
“It is time now that we as Republicans come together and support our nominee for president,” Ricketts said at a Trump rally in Omaha, Neb., on Friday.
Ricketts was widely expected to endorse Trump Friday despite his family’s active support for an anti-Trump PAC. The Ricketts family, which owns the Chicago Cubs baseball team, donated at least $5.5 million to a PAC created to take down the businessman.
Trump’s Nebraska visit comes ahead of the state’s primary Tuesday.
