Local activist Morgann Freeman jumps into 2nd Congressional District Democratic primary

A Black Lives Matter activist and member of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce’s young professionals group will seek to represent Omaha in Congress.

Morgann Freeman is the third Democrat to declare her candidacy in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District, which includes Douglas County and western Sarpy County.

She will face Ann Ferlic Ashford, an attorney, and Kara Eastman, a former nonprofit executive, in the primary. The winner will run against Rep. Don Bacon, a Republican retired Air Force general, who is expected to seek a third term in the November 2020 election.

Freeman said she is a freelance communications consultant. Her LinkedIn page says she formerly worked at Nebraska Appleseed and United Way of the Midlands. She also helped organize a Black Lives Matter rally in 2016.
