  Mike Johanns, Nebraska Governor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
I'll tell you, this is a guy who grew up on a dairy farm here in Nebraska, knows agriculture and is a real friend of agriculture.

 Governor of Nebraska - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Governor of Nebraska holds the "supreme executive power" of the State of Nebraska as provided by the fourth article of the Nebraska Constitution.
Governors of Nebraska must be at least 30 years old and have been citizens and residents of the state for five years before being elected.
The state constitution was amended in a 1962 referendum so that beginning with the 1966 election, the Governor would be elected to a four-year term; in 1966, this was further amended to place a term limit of two consecutive terms.
