Bob Rauner was a 2014 candidate for District 28 of the Nebraska State Senate.


Rauner earned his medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and his M.P.H. with a focus on child obesity and health policy from Johns Hopkins University.

Campaign themes


Rauner's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

Better Health Care, Lower Taxes

  • Excerpt: "By supporting legislation that makes health care more efficient and effective, Bob can help Nebraska improve healthcare delivery while dramatically cutting costs, saving significant taxpayer dollars and protecting education funding."

Education: Healthy Schools

  • Excerpt: "Nebraska needs predictable and sustainable funding for our schools to be financially fit, as well. If health care costs continue to grow unchecked, it impacts the state budget for funding of education. Without addressing the rising cost of health care, education funding will get cut."


  • Excerpt: "We need competitive incentives to attract and keep young people in the cities and towns across Nebraska. Nebraska’s rural communities cannot stay vital without needed job opportunities and services such as access to healthcare . . . More effective and efficient management of our state’s healthcare costs will decrease taxes for individuals and businesses alike."
