At an election earlier today, gubernatorial candidates were selected to represent their party in the general election which will be held tomorrow morning after an hour and a half debate between candidates. Representing the Nationalist Party is Gettysburg citizen Logan Baker, and representing the Federalist Party is Nick “Nick-It” Schreiner of Yorktown. After tomorrow’s election, the winner will be inaugurated at a session on Saturday morning.
Tuesday afternoon, delegates voted in primary elections for their state ticket to narrow the playing field down for Thursday’s general election. Here’s what will be on Thursday’s ballot.
Secretary of State:
State Treasurer: Nationalist Seth Skibinski of Gettysburg vs. Federalist Wyatt Schuettler of Bunker Hill
State Auditor: Nationalist Drew Fairchild-Flynn of Yorktown vs. Federalist Tanner Ahrens of Bunker Hill
Public Service Commissioner (Vote for 5):

On Tuesday afternoon, candidates up for election in the initial primaries were given a bit of time to go to different towns and campaign. While much of the debate was on serious political issues, some candidates were asked to do tricks or other personal feats for the enjoyment of the town they were visiting. Check out the photo collage below.
Earlier this evening, sixteen boys came forward with the backing of their parties and towns and formally announced their interest in running for state governor by filing for the ballot. Each boy will campaign for their party’s vote until the Thursday gubernatorial primary, at which point one boy will represent each party, and they will have just one more day to campaign to the whole delegation of Cornhusker Boys’ State. After an hour and a half debate Friday morning, the vote will take place, leaving only one boy to become Boys’ State Governor 2010-2011. Here are the candidates.
