Republicans currently control Nebraska’s U.S. House and Senate delegations and have controlled the state government since 1999. However, Democrats have the opportunity to finally elect a Democrat to the U.S. House this November by winning a competitive seat: NE-02.

What's at stake

Infrastructure. More than 6,633 bridges in Nebraska are in need of repairs. Nebraska will receive about $2.5 billion in federal funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to repair roads and maintain roads and bridges over the next five years. One potential use of the funds includes completing Nebraska’s expressway system, which is a project that has been underway since 1988.

Health care. Nebraska’s Hispanic population is disproportionately uninsured. In 2020, Nebraska’s Medicaid expansion brought health insurance to 90,000 Nebraskans. However, of the 7.3% of Nebraska’s population that remains uninsured, 25% are Hispanic—despite Hispanic Nebraskans making up only 11% of the total population. Further expanding health care access would help reduce this disparity in coverage.

Family farms. For decades, corporate farming was illegal in Nebraska. While the constitutional amendment prohibiting corporations from owning farms was struck down nearly 20 years ago, most Nebraska farms are still owned by families. However, as the population of Nebraska shifts away from rural areas property taxes for family farmers increase in order to fund public schools, creating a burden that many say is unsustainable.
