The Washington Examiner reports:

Sen. Pete Ricketts (R-NE) will have a chance to stay on Capitol Hill after winning Nebraska’s special primary election on Tuesday to finish out former Republican Sen. Ben Sasse’s term until 2026.

Ricketts succeeded Sasse, who left Congress to become the next president of the University of Florida, on Jan. 12, 2023, by an appointment from Gov. Jim Pillen (R-NE). The former governor of Nebraska, Ricketts also plans to run for a full term in 2026 once Sasse’s term is fulfilled.

Ricketts, along with Sen. Deb Fischer (R-NE), who is seeking reelection, and the three members of the Nebraska House delegation, did not receive an endorsement from the state Republican Party — the first time in party history.
