Nebraska Democratic Party Statement on Primary Election Results

LINCOLN, NE – The Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb issues the following statement regarding Nebraska’s Primary Election results:

“The party’s efforts to recruit and support a strong slate of candidates representing working and middle-class families paid off as candidates now head to the general election. Competing in down-ballot races brings energy and motivation to voters who are engaged in local issues from climate action to public education and reproductive rights. Republicans spent their time fighting each other over outdated culture wars while Democrats stayed focused on talking and listening to voters. Our state rejected some of the most MAGA candidates at the legislative and state board of education levels. Trump and Bacon are coming out of the primary with a fractured base while Biden and Vargas have a united party standing with them. Our party will continue to talk to voters to protect the electoral vote for President Biden, send Vargas, Blood, and Love to DC all while increasing our numbers in the legislature. We are unified and we are ready.” – Chair Jane Kleeb

Democrats Headed to the General Election:

The NDP would like to congratulate the following Democratic and Independent (NP) candidates, both incumbents and new candidates, who will advance to the general election on November 5th, 2024. The list represents a strong and diverse slate of candidates up and down the ballot. We look forward to supporting these candidates in the coming months in our efforts to break the one-party rule in our state.
