NE-02: Kara Eastman raised $1.8 million last quarter, far more than Rep. Don Bacon

WASHINGTON — Democratic congressional candidate Kara Eastman just notched a blockbuster fundraising quarter, bringing in more than $1.8 million in her bid to unseat Republican incumbent Rep. Don Bacon.

Her haul compares with Bacon’s $977,000 in total receipts for the quarter that ended Sept 30.

Bacon and Eastman are vying to represent the Omaha-based 2nd District, which has featured some of the tightest House contests in the country in recent election cycles.

“People throughout Nebraska are investing in Kara’s race because they know she can win,” Eastman campaign manager Dave Pantos said in a statement. “In contrast, Rep. Bacon has had to supplement his anemic, low-dollar individual fundraising by raising thousands of dollars from the NRA, opioid giant Abbott Labs, and Boeing, whose 737 planes caused multiple deadly crashes last year after willfully ignoring safety flaws.”

Bacon campaign spokesman Kyle Clark said they’re “beyond grateful for the generous support” to the congressman’s campaign. Clark attributed Eastman’s fundraising success to contributions from those on the coasts.
