Trump tweets veiled threat against family of Nebraska Governor

Marlene Ricketts, who lives in Nebraska, is the wife of TD Ameritrade founder and billionaire Joe Ricketts, who lives in Wyoming. She has contributed millions to a SuperPac which excoriated Trump in Iowa and probably contributed to his loss. After Trump found out, he tweeted this, misspelling the family's name:
      The Ricketts family is, except for lawyer and gay activist daughter Laura, solidly and actively Republican. A son, Pete, is the governor of Nebraska and has been brazenly trying to illegally import death penalty drugs into the state. He and his father are the principle backers of a referendum to bring back the death penalty following the Unicameral's override of Ricketts' veto of its abolition of capital punishment.
