Sen. Ben Sasse handily cleared his Republican primary election hurdle Tuesday night and headed to a general election match with a Democratic nominee who will face a daunting challenge in November.

Securing the Democratic nomination late Tuesday night was Chris Janicek, owner/operator of Cupcake Omaha.

In winning the GOP nomination for a second term, Sasse broke the record for the most primary votes ever received for federal office in Nebraska.

Meanwhile, state Sen. Kate Bolz of Lincoln claimed the Democratic nomination for the 1st District House seat now held by eight-term Republican Rep. Jeff Fortenberry of Lincoln.
