U.S. Senate

Both of the state's U.S. Senate seats are on the ballot this year, although there are no competitive primaries.

In the regularly-scheduled election, Republican Deb Fischer is seeking an 3rd term. She faces a nominal primary challenge. Democrats are not competing for this seat, and are expected to coalesce behind Dan Osborn, an independent.

The special election is to complete the term of Ben Sasse (R), who resigned in January, 2023, to become the president of the University of Florida. Newly-elected Gov. Jim Pillen (R) appointed his predecessor, Pete Ricketts (R) to fill the seat until the special election. Ricketts has only minor primary opposition, while Preston Love Jr. is unopposed for the Democrats.

U.S. House

One primary is drawing attention. Don Bacon is seeking a 5th term in the Omaha-area District 2. The moderate Republican has drawn a populist/MAGA challenger. Businessman Dan Frei has been endorsed by the state party, although Bacon has drawn most other endorsements and maintains a significant fundraising advantage.

The winner will meet Democrat Tony Vargas in the general election. Vargas lost to Bacon by about 3% in 2022.

State Senate

Unique among the 50 states, Nebraska has a unicameral (single chamber) State Legislature. Members are called Senators. While officially nonpartisan, political affiliation is known. There are 33 Republicans and 15 Democrats as well as one with no party affiliation. Members serve four-year staggered terms; the 25 odd-numbered districts are up for election this year.

The top two finishers in contested primaries advance to the November 5 general election.
