Pat Condon announced Monday that he will run to be the next Lancaster County attorney.

Condon has 28 years experience in the office and for the past seven has been chief deputy to County Attorney Joe Kelly, a fellow Republican who has been nominated to be U.S. attorney for Nebraska and is awaiting confirmation.
