Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is set to make a campaign announcement with some of the state’s top Republican officials amid news that a local GOP activist will challenge him in the party’s primary.

Sasse will make the announcement in Omaha alongside Governor Pete Ricketts, former Governors Dave Heineman and Kay Orr, and U.S. Representatives Jeff Fortenberry and Don Bacon.

The event was announced as former Lancaster County Republican Party Chairman Matt Innis declared his candidacy for Sasse’s seat.
