“A progressive candidate running on Medicare-for-all is on the verge of beating a former US congressman in the Democratic primary for a crucial 2018 House election in Nebraska, but the race is too close to call.
As of press time, Kara Eastman, president of a local nonprofit, holds a narrow lead over former Rep. Brad Ashford in the Democratic primary in Nebraska’s Second Congressional District. Ashford had been elected to the seat in 2014, though he lost it to Republican Rep. Don Bacon in 2016. He had received public support from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Nebraska requires a recount if the margin of victory is narrower than 1 percent of the leading candidate’s vote total. Eastman has about 16,000 votes and leads by nearly 500 votes, which would appear to be outside that recount margin, at last count.”*
