LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Nebraska Republican Party has re-elected its chairman to another two-year term.

The party announced Friday that Omaha attorney and former city council member Dan Welch was chosen at its State Central Committee meeting on Saturday.

Welch was first elected as chairman in March 2015, at the urging of Gov. Pete Ricketts.

Welch says he’ll continue advocating for the party’s agenda of limited government, lower taxes and greater opportunity.

Ricketts praised Welch for leadership and vision that are “assets to our party and the conservative movement.”
