Eastman rides a progressive wave to the Democratic nomination in the 2nd District

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Joseph Morton and Roseann Moring

Kara Eastman pulled off a surprise primary victory Tuesday as Omaha-area Democrats tapped the nonprofit executive to take on incumbent Republican Rep. Don Bacon.

Eastman and former Rep. Brad Ashford traded off the lead through Tuesday night. But her lead became insurmountable by the final unofficial results.

“I am probably very visibly humbled and honored to accept the Democratic nomination,” Eastman said, clearly feeling the emotion of the moment.

She said it’s appropriate this came after Mother’s Day because she chose to run after watching her mother battle cancer.
