NRCC Statement on Kara Eastman Becoming Apparent Democratic Nominee in Nebraska’s Second District

May 16, 2018

Washington – The NRCC released the following statement after far-left progressive Kara Eastman appeared to be the winner of the Democratic nomination in Nebraska’s Second District:

“Far-left progressives are winning the war for the soul of the Democratic Party, and it appears they have their first scalp in former Congressman Brad Ashford. If these results hold, all of Nancy Pelosi and the DCCC’s efforts to put their thumb on the scale couldn’t save Ashford – now every establishment Democrat in a contested primary has reason to be very nervous.

“Kara Eastman makes socialist Bernie Sanders look moderate by comparison. Her support for European-style single payer, weakening our military, and open borders are a better fit for San Francisco than Nebraska.” -NRCC Spokesman Jack Pandol
