NE AG Peterson Will Not Run In 2022
Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson won’t seek a third term in office in 2022. The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Peterson announced his plans in a note to family and friends that the newspaper obtained Saturday. Peterson is a Republican who served as assistant state attorney general before he was first elected in 2014. He ran unopposed in 2018. Peterson said in his note that “it has been a unique privilege to serve our state as Attorney General.” During his time in office, Peterson challenged several policies established by the Barack Obama and Joe Biden administrations.
