October 23, 2019 by Beatrice Daily Sun (Nebraska)
It’s been 13 years since Ben Nelson was reelected to the Senate, romping to a second-term victory over a Republican newcomer named Pete Ricketts in 2006.
The former Democratic senator – and former two-term governor – won that contest by 164,000 votes, and it marked the sixth Democratic victory in the past eight Senate elections in Nebraska at the time.
Times have changed.
