Both Sen. Beau McCoy of Elkhorn (now a suburb of Omaha) and Pete Ricketts, a failed U.S. Senate candidate in 2006, are running for Governor of Nebraska on the GOP ticket. Said McCoy recently in the Omaha World-Herald:

"I don't see how it's possible to be against gay marriage while, at the same time, owning with your family, a national baseball team that purports to be one of the most gay-friendly baseball teams in the country."

Rickett's gay lawyer sister, Laura, has been a Lambda Legal volunteer and financial supporter and actively lobbies for marriage equality.
