 A trio of Republican Governors spoke at the McCloskey speaker series last night in Aspen. Matt Bevin (KY), Pete Ricketts (NE)  and Lawrence Hogan Jr. (MD) discussed the upcoming presidential election how their state’s economies have improved under their leadership.

 

When asked about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, Bevin said he would not endorse the candidate, but would be voting for him in the upcoming election.

 

“Ask a military veteran, ask a firefighter. Ask a the person who moves the chalks from the wheel of your airplane when you fly out of here,” said Bevin. “Ask these people what’s happening.”

Ricketts spoke about his business experience and how that helped him lead Nebraska and make it what CNN had called one of the best places for business.
