Nebraska will hold.

So they were calling Nebraska 2nd District a toss-up this November. The idea was that the moderate Democrat Ashford would run against the incumbent Gen. Don Bacon.

Ashford lost the primary to Progressive Bernie Sanders style newcomer Kara Eastman. New prediction, Bacon wins in a landslide.

Blue wave? Not sure it willl be more than a trickle of baby piss.

3. 47 Seats...

most likely in heavily democratic districtd that a Republican has no chance of winning. Why give up a sacrificial lamb or spend a dime to fight a lost cause?
I think the DNC might abandon NE-2 after this.

2. maybe you are right

but ms eastman is a ray of sunshine to many of us. the chance of putting an actual progressive in the house may motivate many discouraged voters to get to the polls,

we are starting to collect yesterday's results at jpr. we could not have hoped for better.

4. The downtrodden progressive....

showed up for Eastman. She got 20,000. That is her base. Progressives can be thankful that the General will be quick and painless. If you got every progressive in Nebraska to vote in the 2nd she loses in a landslide.
She is anti-military and half of her possible district is home to Offutt AFB which Bacon used to command.

Send her a sympathy card.
