Leavenworth St. has learned that Taylor Royal will indeed run for the Republican nomination for State Treasurer in 2018.
Royal’s campaign plans had been on hold after creating a website and considering all of his options for the statewide office. But he has been making the campaign rounds lately and his announcement (or announcement to announce) is considered imminent.
State Senator John Murante (R-Big Fred’s) who announced his campaign a few months ago, is currently the only other candidate in the primary race.
But Royal’s plans have seemingly been in the works for a while. Coming off his surprising notoriety in the 2017 Omaha Mayor’s race where he changed the focus for all the campaigns, Royal, a certified public accountant, would seem to be in his wheelhouse for the Treasurer’s office.
This has the potential for one of the more interesting primary races in the state next year.
Topic of the Week
I’m guessing you commenters want to wring your hands about DACA.
Most Republicans say it was the correct, Constitutional, move by President Trump to rescind this “Executive authority” which many agree does not exist. And Congressional Republican pretty much uniformly say it’s their job to address this immigration issue.
Many, many Democrats say it is “heartless” to change the DACA order…and simply want the status quo? No change to this perfect immigration system we now have? Or something?
Rock n’ roll.

Ah Betsy Riot.
You know your audience so well.
Scream more at those Republicans who pay full-fare for Nebraska football tickets.
They appreciate you calling them Neo-Nazis. And the louder your scream, the more likely they are to come to your side of thinking.
I’m sure of it.
