RUSH TRANSCRIPT
PRESS CONFERENCE WITH GOVERNOR RICKETTS
LINCOLN, NEBRASKA

Reporter #1: Governor, Nebraska is the latest state to repeal capital punishment, now that the legislature has overridden your veto. You’ve said you’re still going to go ahead and execute the ten people already on death row here. None of the other eighteen states that have done away with capital punishment have executed anyone after their new law passed. Why are you so hellbent on executing people?

Governor: Look at it this way, Chet: if the state’s chief executive can’t execute, what’s the point?
