John Ewing defeats Gwen Howard for 2nd Congressional District Nomination

John Ewing has won the democratic nomination for Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District, defeating Gwen Howard.

Ewing is the Douglas County Treasurer and a former Omaha police officer who entered the race last summer. 

I caught up with Ewing during his celebration and he says he’s excited to win the nomination and gives a lot of credit to his hard working staff. But he says championship teams don’t celebrate during half time.

Ewing says as he goes forward in the campaign, his leadership experience is what will set him apart.  He says he wants to go to Washington to provide Nebraskans with the Good Life that we always talk about in the state.
