Peter Ricketts on Free Trade

Republican Senate Challenger


Free trade in our vital interest

Free and fair trade is vital to the interests of Nebraska and our nation. About one out of every three acres of Nebraska crops goes to export markets. Millions of American jobs--in every sector--depend on free and fair trade and international markets.
