Brad Ashford is ready to go back to work for the people of Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District.
A community leader in Nebraska for the past three decades, Brad Ashford was a four-term state senator in the Nebraska Legislature (1987-1995 and 2007-2015) and served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2015-2016. He won his House seat by defeating an eight-term sitting Congressperson in Nebraska’s Second Congressional District. Ashford was the first Democrat to hold the seat in two decades, and one of only two Democrats in the U.S. to defeat an incumbent House Republican in the 2014 election.
Ashford’s term in Congress was highlighted by his ability to find solutions through public-private partnerships and consensus-building instead of partisan politics. He was the only freshman Congressperson in the 114th Congress to be the primary sponsor of a bill that passed – the bill that would create a new VA Medical Center in Omaha and provide a blueprint for the building of VA health facilities across the nation. Some of his other successes included a new runway at Offutt Air Force Base and Ebola-related funding for the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
