Nebraska GOP congressman survives primary challenge from the right

Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.) defeated a challenger from the right flank of his party in his attempt to win reelection in Nebraska’s 2nd District without the support of the state and local chapters of the Republican Party.

Bacon will now face Democrat Tony Vargas, whom he defeated in the 2022 election by just under three points. Vargas ran unopposed in the Democratic primary.
