Fischer easily defeated four GOP primary challengers and enjoys a substantial fundraising advantage and statewide name recognition.

After the results are determined, candidates that win their party's nomination will face off in the general election, which is set to happen November 6th.

The 2nd District was the only truly competitive congressional seat in deep-red Nebraska, and this year the race for the Democratic nomination featured two well-funded candidates.

Eastman's victory early Wednesday over former Democratic Rep. Brad Ashford followed a long campaign in which Eastman billed herself as a progressive political newcomer.

Ricketts, the Republican incumbent, enjoys considerable advantages heading into the November 6 general election, including better name recognition and more money in his campaign coffer.

Justify Draws 7th Position For Preakness
With or without that issue, the 2018 Preakness Stakes is "no gimme" for Justify , trainer Bob Baffert told Horse Racing Nation . Wednesday, will be joined in the field by Good Magic, Quip, Diamond King, Bravazo, Sporting Chance, Tenfold and Lone Sailor.

Democrats were excited that Ashford, a moderate Republican-turned-Democrat who lost by just one point last fall, would give Bacon a tough challenge.

Key primaries in Nebraska's congressional districts remained too close to call at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Ashford had been the first Democrat in two decades to win the district, which encompasses much of the Omaha metro area. First District Republican Congressman Don Bacon will face Democratic primary victor Kara Eastman in the general election.

Other top races included crowded fields in both parties for governor and Senate nominations, and a two-person race for treasurer that likely will mean a general election victory for the victor.

Ashford had the backing of national Democratic leaders, including his former colleagues in Congress who donated to his campaign.
