OMAHA, Nebraska — The campaigns of the candidates running for Nebraska’s 2nd district are entering the homestretch, which is one of the most competitive contests in the region.
The campaign of Republican candidate Don Bacon reported that they have knocked on the doors of around 10,000 households over the course of the past two weeks. He has made a point of highlighting a few of his measures that would, among other locations, provide funds for Offutt Air Force Base, Eppley Airfield, and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
Tony Vargas, the Democratic candidate for District 2, stated that he has been concentrating on making sure that voters understand his message and what he can do to better represent the district. Both candidates agreed that the economy and rising prices were the most important concerns facing voters today.

The election takes place just a few days after Daylight Saving Time (DST) was discontinued for the year. The Senate voted in favor of implementing DST in March, but the legislation did not move further in the House of Representatives. Both Vargas and Bacon expressed their willingness to consider the proposition.
According to Bacon, “the majority of people want to stop the time changes twice a year, so I’m working on that legislation.” “The bill was approved by the Senate with 100 percent support, but the Democratic majority has refused to bring it up for a vote.”
“I’ll be honest, like, we’ve had this conversation in the legislature, and what we tend to find is that there’s a good group of people, Democrats and Republicans, that think we should change it, and I’m open-minded to that,” said Vargas. “I’ll be honest, like, we’ve had this conversation in the legislature, and what we tend to find is that there’s a good group of people, Democrats and Republicans, that think
If the Senate had approved the change, it would have been implemented the following year.
