Democratic Primary for Nebraska's 2nd District Remains Too Close to Call

Primary Election 2018: Voter's guide What you need to know about Tuesday's Nebraska primary election

Raybould defeated three Democratic challengers in Tuesday's primary race for the seat held by Republican Sen.

Eastman contrasted herself against Ashford, a centrist and former Republican who focused on his legislative experience and willingness to work with conservatives.

Eastman will face off against Rep. Don Bacon, the Republican who unseated Ashford in 2016.

Ashford had been the first Democrat in two decades to win the district, which encompasses much of the Omaha metro area. Two of those districts in rural Nebraska have six candidates each who are running.

And while the primary remained quite civil - his niece is close friends with her daughter - an Eastman win would set up a far different general election campaign, one national Democrats feel far less confident about. He now will face Democrat Paul Theobald, a hog farmer, historian and former administrator at Wayne State College who ran unopposed for his party's nomination. Her primary challengers were Jack Heidel, a retired math professor from Omaha; Dennis Frank Macek, a writer and retired air conditioning technician from Lincoln; Jeffrey Lynn Stein, a professional photographer from Omaha; and Lincoln businessman Todd Watson.

In the gubernatorial race, GOP Gov. Pete Ricketts and Democratic state Sen.

Knute Buehler has won the GOP gubernatorial primary, besting a crowded field vying to compete against incumbent Democrat Kate Brown in November.

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts has easily won the Republican nomination to seek a second term in November.

Nebraska's marquee races for governor and U.S. Senate shook out as expected Tuesday after polls closed for the state's primary election.
