Democrat Chuck Hassebrook has chosen Lancaster County Commissioner Jane Raybould as his running mate in the Nebraska governor's race. 

Hassebrook announced his pick on Monday at the Capitol. Raybould, who was born and raised in Lincoln, was first elected to the county board of commissioners in 2010. 

Hassebrook is running against Republican Pete Ricketts in the race to replace Gov. Dave Heineman, who is leaving office due to term limits. Ricketts has selected current Lt. Gov. Lavon Heidemann, a farmer and former state senator, as his running mate.
