OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Republican Don Bacon has won Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District seat and defeated incumbent Democrat Brad Ashford.

The race was still too close to call early Wednesday morning with election officials determining that Republican challenger Don Bacon held a slight edge over incumbent Democratic Rep. Brad Ashford with only about 70 percent of the vote counted.

The Republican nominee won Wednesday after capturing Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes, putting him over the 270 threshold.

GOP candidates prevailed in enough races Tuesday to remain the dominant party even though senators aren't controlled by formal party leadership.

Trump easily won Nebraska's four other electoral votes Tuesday, but the outcome of the 2nd congressional district remained unclear until well after midnight.

The action reverses the Legislature's decision last year to repeal capital punishment.
