    Former President Donald Trump’s political comeback suffered a blow in Nebraska after his choice for the GOP gubernatorial nomination was beaten in the primary by a hog farm owner. With almost all precincts reporting early Wednesday, Jim Pillen — who is also a veterinarian and a University of Nebraska regent — had 33.9% of the vote compared to 30.2% for Trump-endorsed Charles Herbster.

    The top race in Tuesday’s primary elections in Nebraska and West Virginia is a heavily contested Republican primary for Nebraska governor, featuring a Donald Trump-endorsed candidate who has been accused of groping multiple women. Voters in Nebraska will also be nominating candidates to replace former U.S. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, a Republican convicted in March on charges he lied to federal authorities about an illegal campaign contribution he received from a Nigerian billionaire. In West Virginia, two incumbent congressmen are facing off in a Republican primary after redistricting cost the state a seat in the U.S. House. What to watch as...
  • In Nebraska, a Trump-Inspired Candidate Cracks Open Divide in the G.O.P. (primary Tuesday!)

    In his run for governor of Nebraska, Charles W. Herbster is doing his best imitation of former President Donald J. Trump. His 90-minute stump speech is packed with complaints about illegal immigrants, stories boasting of his business triumphs, a conspiracy theory connecting China, the coronavirus pandemic and the 2020 election, and denials of the recent accusations that he’s groped women at political events. He even vows to clean up the “swamp” — but he means Lincoln, the state capital. Like his political role model — and chief backer — Mr. Herbster is proving to be a one-man political wrecking ball....

    Former President Trump held his second rally in a week for Nebraska gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster (R), who is facing multiple sexual misconduct allegations just days before the May 10 primary. “Charles will never bend to the RINOs [Republican In Name Only], or the corrupt media, and the media is totally corrupt … exception of a few, or the radical left, and we have a country full of radical left,” Trump said in brief remarks. “The fake news and the Washington establishment are doing everything they can to try and stop Charles. He’s not the person they want because he’s...

    Former President Trump expressed regret over endorsing Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) in the 2020 Nebraska Senate race, saying he “should have never given him the endorsement.” “He’s bad news, Ben Sasse. He begged for my endorsement, the day after he started hitting me and we hit much harder than he knows how to hit. He’s bad news,” Trump said during a telerally held for Nebraska gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster (R).

    Since she was 18, Maxine Moul has been a registered Democrat. She remained a Democrat while serving as Nebraska’s first female lieutenant governor under Gov. Ben Nelson in the 1990s and during a run for Congress in 2006. Not now. Moul recently switched her political party registration to Republican, joining what appears to be a small, but possibly significant shift to vote in a hotly contested gubernatorial primary.

    GREENWOOD, Neb. (KOLN) - President Donald Trump’s Save America Rally at the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Nebraska scheduled for Friday has been postponed due to the threat of severe weather. Trump emailed a statement around 3 p.m. calling off the event. Instead, Trump is planning to have the rally on Sunday. “Thank you to all who waited in line for our Save America Rally tonight in Greenwood, Nebraska. Because of severe weather, including the possibility of 60 mph+ wind, hailstorms, and maybe even tornadoes, I will not be coming to Nebraska tonight, but rather, weather permitting, will be there this...
  • Trump endorsement divides Republicans in deep-red Nebraska

    In one of the nation’s most overwhelmingly Republican states, the party is entering the final stretch of a bruising primary campaign deeply divided over who should become the nominee for governor. Nearly all of Nebraska’s GOP establishment leaders are lining up behind businessman Jim Pillen, believing he would be the easy favorite to win in November. But no endorsement matters quite like that of former President Donald Trump, who is backing his longtime friend Charles Herbster and will hold a rally on his behalf Friday. And in a twist, a third candidate, state Sen. Brett Lindstrom, is emerging as a...

    When former President Donald Trump takes the stage in Nebraska Friday night—he’s scheduled to hold one of his well-known rallies for GOP statehouse hopeful Charles Herbster—Republicans won’t be the only ones watching. Democrats tell us they’ll be live tweeting and fact-checking stump speeches from the I-80 Speedway in Greenwood. According to Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb, “Herbster and Trump embody today’s Republican Party— liars, sexual predators, spreader of conspiracy theories and tax dodgers.” Herbster—who has banked much of his campaign, arguably all of it, on Trump’s endorsement—was recently accused of groping eight women, including the only named accuser, GOP...

    GREENWOOD, Neb. (WOWT) - Organizers for former President Trump’s “Save America” rally announced additional speakers for Friday’s event. Event organizers had already announced Charles Herbster, endorsed by Trump in October, would be a featured speaker at the event. The Republican candidate for governor of Nebraska has made headlines in recent weeks after filing a defamation lawsuit against Nebraska State Sen. Julie Slama following accusations from her and several other unidentified women; Slama countersued on Monday. Calling Trump “my good friend,” Herbster tweeted a video of the preparations underway Thursday for Trump’s rally. In addition to Herbster, slated to speak at...

    Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced a rally in Nebraska featuring Republican gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster, whose campaign was shaken less than a week earlier after multiple women (falsely) accused him of groping or inappropriate touching. Herbster has denied the allegations. Aside from Trump, Herbster is the only person so far slated to speak at the rally in Greenwood, Nebraska, on April 29, less than two weeks before the primary election on May 10.

    Republican gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster and his campaign called accusations against him of sexual assault "libelous" and "100% false" in a statement Thursday afternoon, and accused political rivals Jim Pillen and Pete Ricketts of political dirty tricks. A report published Thursday by the Nebraska Examiner said eight women, including state Sen. Julie Slama, have alleged Herbster of sexual misconduct, with all of the incidents happening between 2017 and 2022. Slama confirmed the Examiner's account in a statement Thursday morning, saying she was touched inappropriately by Herbster during a Republican event in 2019.“I indirectly referenced the assault in a February 2022...

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) was more dangerous than Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) while discussing Republican senators who voted against confirming Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “Lindsey Graham, of course, is already hinting there will be consequences if the GOP takes over after the midterms. I do want to point out that Lindsey Graham voted for Ketanji Jackson for the U.S. Court of Appeals less than a year ago. If you’re voting to put people on the court, why is this one so...
  • Ben Sasse to Vote ‘No’ on Jackson’s Supreme Court Nomination, Threatening Judiciary Committee’s Approval

    Senate Judiciary Committee member Ben Sasse (R-NE) announced Friday night he will vote “no” on Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination, threatening the committee’s approval of the judge. If a majority of Judiciary Committee members do not vote to approve Jackson’s nomination, the vote may result in an 11-11 tie between Republicans and Democrats, forwarding her nomination to the Senate floor with additional procedural steps, meaning the nomination does not have the committee’s recommendation, which under other circumstances is often fatal. A full Senate vote could then mean moderate Democrats may oppose Jackson’s nomination because of her record of soft...

    Senator Ben. Sasse (R-NE) called out the “jackassery” in the Senate moments after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned President Joe Biden’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson, about her soft sentences for child sex offenders. Sasse spoke about why cameras should not be allowed in the Supreme Court when he noted that “the jackassery we often see around [the U.S. Senate] is partly because of people looking for short term camera opportunities.”
