    • David Eugene "Dave" Heineman** (born [[9]]y 12, 1948, in Falls City, Nebraska) is an American Republican politician who currently serves as the Governor of Nebraska.

Heineman graduated from the [States Military Academy] in [[10]]. He served two terms as the Nebraska State Treasurer from [[11]] to [[12]] and was appointed to the office of Lieutenant Governor of Nebraska on [1], [[13]], and was elected to his first full term in [[14]]. He became Governor on [20], [[15]], following [Johanns]' resignation to become [States Secretary of Agriculture] in President [W. Bush's] Cabinet. On [11], [[16]], Heineman announced that he would be seeking [to a full four-year term]. He had the backing of [[17]] [[18]] [Hagel], though he faced a difficult challenge in the Republican primary from former [Cornhuskers football] coach and U.S. Representative [Osborne]. Heineman took 49 percent of the more than 197,000 votes cast, and Osborne 45 percent [[1]]. The [Journal Star]'s analysis of the race attributed Heineman's win to his opposition to Class I rural school reorganization and the granting of resident college tuition rates to the children of illegal immigrants, helping him win over rural voters. [[2]] Heineman defeated [[19]] nominee David Hahn in the [7], [[20]], [election], capturing 76 percent of the vote. #External_links
