Sen. Bob Krist may skip a Republican gubernatorial primary confrontation with Gov. Pete Ricketts next year and move directly to the 2018 general election ballot by forming a separate party as a vehicle to offer voters "a centrist approach to governing."
His message would "focus on unity" and problem-solving rather than Republican or Democratic partisanship or party dogma, the Omaha senator said, and he would directly address the issues that are most important to Nebraskans.
Heading that list, he said, would be property tax relief.
