Having won election in November 2022 with 69% of the vote, Mike Foley returned to his previous position as auditor of public accounts in Nebraska after an eight-year hiatus serving as lieutenant governor from 2015–23. Former Governor Pete Ricketts (R) chose Foley as his running mate in September 2014 after first defeating him in the GOP primary just four months earlier and the previous lieutenant governor resigned.
Prior to holding public office, Foley worked as a corporate planning analyst with the Nebraska Public Power District, director of financial analysis for the National Association of Regulatory Commissioners, and a consultant with Kirschner Associates. In addition, he was a member of the Nebraska State Senate from 2000–07.
Foley earned a BS from the State University of New York in 1976 and an MBA from Michigan State University in 1978.
