Nebraska Primary Sets Up Showdown for Governor

Nebraska Primary Sets Up Showdown for Governor

President Trump won the Omaha-based district by two percentage points, and Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE), a former Air Force general, proved to be a solid campaigner last election cycle.

Eastman's supporters framed her victory as proof of the argument that Democratic primary voters want a candidate that adheres to their values over one that may compromise for electability.

They had gone all-in for Ashford in recent months - the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee tacitly endorsed him over Eastman early this year by putting him on their "red-to-blue" program, and a number of members helped Ashford raise money for the race.

In the general election Fischer will face Lincoln Councilwoman Jane Raybould who out distanced Lincoln Judge Frank Svobado, Larry Marvin, Chris Janicek. Krist has pitched himself as a less partisan alternative to Ricketts who would work more collaboratively with the Legislature.

Democrats Vanessa Gayle Ward, an Omaha community activist, and University of Nebraska at Omaha instructor Tyler Davis were also seeking the nomination in their first bids for public office. Eastman defeated former Congressman Brad Ashford, who was a favorite among top leaders in the party's primary. Fortenberry was unopposed while Mcclure beat Dennis Crawford.

In the sprawling 3rd Congressional District, incumbent Rep. Adrian Smith bested three GOP challengers. John Murante of Gretna held a steady lead over fellow Republican Taylor Royal in a race that will effectively decide the next state treasurer.

Of the 24 districts that are up for election, 10 have more than three candidates vying for the seat.
