He ran in the 1st District and won in 2004, and ran unopposed in 2008 until his support for an increase in the gas tax prompted Jerry Joy to launch an ultimately unsuccessful write-in campaign. Being the chairman of the Appropriations Committee, his primary duty was to negotiate the fiscal budget with Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman.
He ran in 2012 for NU Regent in the 5th District against Mike Jones. He won with a narrow lead.
