Nebraska's governor makes another major donation, hoping to bring back the death penalty.

Our partners at the Omaha World Herald are reporting that Governor Pete Ricketts has donated another $100,000 to the group, Nebraskans for the Death Penalty,

That's in addition to the $200,000 he gave during the petition drive earlier this year.

Overall, the death penalty opponents have raised one and a half million dollars more than the supporters have.

Ten convicted killers remain on death row in Nebraska.
