Governor On Biden’s Mandate: Doesn’t Know What’s Going On In States Because He Skips Weekly Governor Meetings

When asked by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace whether he was being “cavalier with the health” of the people of Nebraska, Ricketts responded, “What we’re doing is focusing on preserving our hospital capacity, which we have successfully done here in Nebraska.”
