The field of candidates is set for the two statewide contests that carry the most interest this fall.
In the gubernatorial race, incumbent Republican Pete Ricketts easily held off a Primary challenge from Krystal Gable. Governor Ricketts will face Democratic nominee Bob Krist. The sitting state senator beat out two other candidates for his Party’s nomination.
In the race for U.S. Senate, incumbent Republican Deb Fischer came out ahead of four challengers.
She will face Lincoln city councilwoman Jane Raybould, who won the Democratic nomination over three other candidates.
Also in the U.S. Senate race, Jim Schultz won an uncontested Primary for the Libertarian Party nomination.
