Take Back the House 2018: Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District

Big-margin GOP victories in this district (2000, 2002. 2004, 2010) appear to be over.  Democrat Brad Ashford beat Republican incumbent Lee Terry in 2014 but lost his 2016 re-election bid to Don Bacon by 3,464 votes.  He was considered of the most vulnerable Democrats.
