Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.) faces a challenge from the right flank of his party as he attempts to win reelection in Nebraska’s 2nd District without the support of the state and local chapters of the Republican Party.

Bacon is running against populist business executive Dan Frei, who secured the endorsement of the Nebraska GOP and the Republican Party’s chapters in the three counties housed in Nebraska’s 2nd District. The local chapters argued that Frei is more closely aligned with former president Donald Trump than Bacon, a four-term congressman who has often sought to strike a moderate stance in the narrowly divided House.
