They had gone all-in for Ashford in recent months - the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee tacitly endorsed him over Eastman early this year by putting him on their "red-to-blue" program, and a number of members helped Ashford raise money for the race.

Eastman defeated former Rep. Brad Ashford in Tuesday's primary election with a campaign that cast her as a champion of liberal ideals, including supporting a single-payer health care system.

Key primaries in Nebraska's congressional districts remained too close to call at 10 p.m. Tuesday. The candidates were Kirk Penner, an Aurora small business executive; Larry Lee Scott Bollinger, a property manager and author from Alliance; and Arron Kowalski, a Grand Island farmer.

A first-time candidate, Eastman said she was inspired to run for Congress by her mother's battle with cancer and the extremely costly prescription drugs that she struggled to afford.

The victor of the GOP contest will enter the general election as a heavy favorite.
